Hello Forum,

After some several months of looking, I still have not been able to find someone who can/will translate Norwegian "Gothic" since I have a few dozen pages. As someone who hasn't even reached novice status yet on translating Norwegian Gothic parish records, I need some help.

I was wondering if anyone knew someone who does these type of translations for a living or at least as a side job. I would want all the lines translated, not just the names and dates. I live in the United States, so it would have to be someone who's willing to receive the pages or links through email.

Thanks for any help you can give.

Kim

The only that is readable in Gothic is the names.

I've read that the Archives has contact with persons that translate Gothic for payment link

The Norwegian American Genealogical Center & Naeseth Library in Madison, WI have an option to hire an expert for Research and Translation Services.
A note says: "Additional fees may apply for Gothic printing, handwritten script, or Nynorsk".
