P-tal and Registration
A registry of the hereditary relationships among the Faroese. The Multi-generation Register contains information regarding Faroese genealogy from app. year 1650 to date. App. 149.000 people are listed in the register.
The Multi-generation Register is drawn up in cooperation with the Faroese National Archive.
In the Genealogy Registry, you are able to see an overview of your ancestors, going back in a direct line. The name of the persons will only appear when the person is over 100 years.
If your child does not have a Faroese P-number, you can apply for a TK-number, which can be used in the BARN system until the P-number is attained.
