Hi!I'll try to translate the baptismal information 'piece by piece', as it is given in the church record:The child's name is Hellene, she was born on November 16 1840, and her birth is 'uægte' (which means that Hellene was born out of wedlock). She was baptized on May 31, 1841. Her parents' names are given as 'Ungkarl' (bachelor) Hans Pedersen (from) Kynberget, and 'Pige' (girl/maid) Kirsti Knudsdtr (from) (Ysts?)sager. This means that this Hellene is technically not Helene Olsdatter at all, but rather Helene Hansdatter.The 'faddere' ('testifiers' of the baptism - I don't know the proper English term) are Ole Gundersen Leiet and his wife Gjertrue Olsdtr, Ole Olsen Moen, Marthe Knudsdtr (Ysts?)ager, and Anne Amundsdtr Leiet. (The name 'Leiet' is hard to read, and may be wrong. I can't make out the farm name that looks like 'Ystsager' or something like it). sincerely Brage

As far as I can see, no Hans Pedersen is recorded as living on a farm called Kynberget in the census of 1865([url="http://www.digitalarkivet.uib.no/cgi-win/WebCens.exe?slag=visbase&sidenr=8&filnamn=f60427&medbilete=&sokpostnr=5#a0>Lenke); there is a Hans Pedersen at Flisberget (Lenke) but he is too young to be the father of Hellene Hansdatter.I also tried a Google search for Hans Pedersen Kynberget.
