Witness for the Baptism in Norddal, Sunnmore

Recommended Posts

Clark Monson

My great grandmother was baptized in the Norddal church in Sunnmore. She was born Berte Lovise on the Uri farm on May 22, 1859 and baptized on June 22, 1859. In the names of the sponsors or witnesses of the baptism I am unable to read the last person's name. It looks like Pauline Paulsdatter Applevig? Can somebody help me in the correct name? Thank you very much!

Apelvig is an unusual name in Norddal district, in Skodje distrikt however, there is a Abelvik (Apalvik) farm, probably spelled "Apelvig" in the Danish spelling of that time. Because witnesses traditionally were close relatives, this is a bit confusing. I do however find one Pauline Paulsdatter Uri (1794-1880) married to Jakob Ols. Valldal. Pauline and Jakob moved to Apalvik at Skodje in 1841 and apparently changed name to Abelvik or Apelvig (according to the convention at the time). Pauline was the younger sister of Ole Pauls. Uri (1785-1844), Berthe Lovise's grandfather. So Pauline was Berthe Lovise's great-aunt and a bit old to be a witness (age 67).

 

You find Pauline's family at Abelvik, Skodje (Skoue) in the 1865 census:

It appears that Berthe was baptized in Dale church (now also called Norddal church) across the fjord, even if her family belonged to Sylte church in Valldal only 3 km down the valley.
