Norwegian Centre for War Sailor History

Norwegian Centre for War Sailor History

Stiftelsen Arkivet received funds in 2016 to establish the Norwegian Centre for War Sailor History and to establish/run the new War Sailor Register. The Centre will also research, document and convey this important piece of our history

 
On 19 January 2016, the new War Sailor register (www.krigsseilerregisteret.no) was launched. This national register will have all Norwegian men and women sailed in the Norwegian Merchant Fleet between 1939 and 1945, upon finishing. We also include Norwegians in Norwegian or Allied Navy as well as those who sailed on Allied and neutral merchant ship between 1939 and 1945. International sailors who sailed for Nortraship and the Norwegian Home fleet will also be registered. 
 
Do you have any queries about family members who sailed in the war or about the historical events, please send us an e-mail: krigsseilerregisteret@stiftelsen-arkivet.no
