Many church records for Stadsbygd and neighboring parishes are available online as images. For Stadsbygd, Rissa, Lensvik, Hasselvika, Stjørna, Bjugn, Ørland and other parishes in Sør-Trøndelag, click here. For Leksvik and other parishes in Nord-Trøndelag, click here. Older records are in Danish-Norwegian and newer ones are in Norwegian. There is a wide variation in handwriting quality, and you may wish to Google help with Gothic handwriting for some of the older records.
Here's a guide to the sections:
Fødte og døpte = birth and christening
Konfirmerte = confirmation (usually at age 15 -- often gives birth years of parents)
Ekteviede = marriage
Døde og begravede = death and burial
Inn- og utflyttede = in and out migration from the parish
Vaksinerte = vaccination
For some parishes, records have been entered into computer databases and are searchable online. For those in Sør-Trøndelag, click here (Stadsbygd parish not currently one of these). For Nord-Trøndelag, click here (includes Leksvik).
