[#15159] Ryfylke - is there a farm or subfarm Aurnes?

Recommended Posts

I am 'stuck' trying to trace back from my ancestor Ola Bjørnson. The earliest thing I know for sure is that he married Alet Halvorsd. in Finnøy in 1795. Alet was from Varland on the island Fogn and Ola the church record says is from 'Berge (or Bjerga?) etter Aurnes'. The wonderful bygdebok for Finnøy (by Bjørkvik) says 'Han kom utenfrå...kanskje Berge in Sand'(side 66, bind 3) On the 1801 census Ola is listed as 34 yr old; when he died in 1839 the church records say he is 70, so he would have been born abt 1767-9. Every kommune seems to have a Berge or Bjerga and I have not been successful at finding a Bjørn with son Ole in Sand or other kommunes near Finnøy, so I wondered if locating the Aurnes mentioned in his church wedding entry would be a helpful clue - perhaps it is a subfarm?His mother is named Ane but there is confusion: on the census she is listed as Ane Hansdt., age 71 in 1801, widow - in the Finnøy church records his mother seems to be Ane Olsdtr who died in 1820, age 84. Thank you for any suggestions you may have.

Aurenes is a farm (# 49.1) in Time, but I guess the meaning here is that Mr. Aurenes had given the info about 'Berge'. Mr. Aurenes was a very active genealogist in Rogaland.

Aurnes isn't mentioned in the bygdebok - it is from the microfilm of the actual church marriage records that I had copied it down as saying 'Bjerga etter Aurnes'. Then when the bygdebok said Berge I thought perhaps I had miscopied the first name but I am sure of the second. When it is written in that way, which of the two farm names would more likely be the birth farm name? Time is an area that I have not tried - thank you!

Hello! I grow up on the island Finnøy, and there is a name called Berge on the south side of the island. The name Bjerga came from the island Bjergøy near Finnøy, The island lays today in a group of islands called Sjernarøyane!Best RegardsKai Petter Flesjå
