This is a follow up to the post «Scanned Church Records II».

Source Information, References and User settings


In the area above, you will find three icons:

  1. an «i» for Source Information
  2. a chain icon for References
  3. a tool (looks like a sprocket) icon for User Settings. Click on the tool icon.

A black box will appear on the right side of the screen that gives several options. You can now choose your own settings. Under Other, you will see that you can check the box next to “Source information like in the old program version”. This allows you to see source information like it used to be in the older version.


Below «Other» there are several other choices you can make for copying Clipboard. Remember you have to be logged in to make these settings. Choices you can make are for Image, Source Information and Reference. You may have to select several options until the print image or saved image is as you want it. When you are satisfied with your choices click Save at the bottom.

The viewer

To use the viewer itself, you can use the arrows or the slider, depending on how many pages you want to go through at once. It is possible to use shortcuts, so if you click on the «i» (Toggle controls), and hide the toolbar, you can use Shift + arrows to go to the Next or Previous page. A click on «f» will give you a full screen, and you could easily go back by clicking «f» again. The question mark at the top right between Norsk/English and your user name will give you the shortcuts.

Print and share images

There are various ways to print or share an image. After the Booklet is downloaded, you could print the Booklet by choosing File and Print (in most PDF viewers).


At there is a button that will allow you to open the Permanent image-link in a new tab in the browser. From here you could Save or print the image from the browser’s menu. The same icon is used for linking to transcribed sources.

The Side menu has three different opportunities for sharing the picture of the scanned Church Record either by E-mail, Facebook or Twitter.

Depending on the computer you are using, i.e., Mac and Windows, and the browser you are using, there will be different options for printing an image.

If you save the picture to your hard drive, either in your pictures or downloads folders, you could share it this way, and upload it to Social Media, such as Facebook, at any time.

Permanent Image ID

Make sure you are logged in to your User account. Go to User settings, and a new menu called « Clipboard» shows up. When you choose Permanent Image ID and Permanent Image Link, and click Save.

You need to identify #1, 2, 3 in the image below and what they refer to.


Go back to References, mark the Permanent image ID, copy it, and paste it into an email, your genealogy program, or anywhere you want to save it for use later.

If you now go back to the front page by clicking Home, or go to, you could paste the number from Permanent image ID, ex. kb20070116630729, into the Direct lookup (image-ID) in the bottom, and click Lookup. You will then go straight to the page you are searching.
