The Digitalarkivet
The Digitalarkivet  http://arkivverket.no/Digitalarkivet 
The National Archives of Norway sponsors the "Digitalarkivet," which is a free collection of civil and church records from all over Norway.  A work in progress, new transcriptions are constantly being added.  In addition to searchable databases, a section devoted to images of original church records is also available.  If you are researching your Norwegian ancestors, there is no better source than Norway's Digitalarkivet!
