The project "Establishment of a national historic-climatological database at the Museum of Archaeology, Stavanger", has been supported by the Norwegian Research Council in the period 1990-1992. One of the tasks is to search for old meteorological observation records from before 1990, records which have not been the responsibility of the Norwegian Meteorological Institute (DNMI), and to register them in a database. An instrumental meteorological record from Stavanger covering the year 1840 is presented. Comments are given on none-instrumental meteorological records from light-houses and on a cooperation programme with the COADS database in Boulder, USA, concerning punching of instrumental records from Norwegian merchant ships in foreign trade 1867-1900. (COADS = Comprehensive Ocean-Atmospheric Data Set).
