Need translation of GGGrandfather's Birthplace

Recommended Posts

KevinBrennan

My Great Great Grandfather Lorens Christian Hansen and GG Grandmother Johanna Olesdatter were marriedn on April 7, 1871 in Grong/Harran, Norway.

 

My GGGrandfather's birthplace is hard to interpret. It looks like Uordalen? Could someone interpret this record into English ? Thanks much

He was born in Værdalen, (Verdal in Nord-Trøndelag), and he was the son of Hans Sørensen.

 

His confirmation is found here, as number 32:

 

Kildeinformasjon: Nord-Trøndelag fylke, Verdal (Stiklestad), Ministerialbok nr. 723A09 (1852-1860), Konfirmerte 1857, side 174.

Thanks so much Yngve Nedrebo for your help. I am new at interpreting these older Norwegian records so am still learning. I believe based on cross referencing your information with Family Search I found Lorentz Christian Hansen's baptism record at Sakshaug in Inderoy Volume 7, page 21 number 70. http://www.arkivverket.no/URN:kb_read?uid=450059&urnread_imagesize=full&show=25#toppen

 

I also believe I found 2 of his sisters Pauline Elisabeth Hnsdatter born 25 Dec 1843 at Saxhoug Hoved, Nord-Trondelag as well as Hanna born 21 Jan 1861 at Verdal, Nord-Trondelag.

 

It is my impression that his mother was Anna Catharinna Lorensdatter and that the last names shown as Kjerulf and Riiber are the names of farms where she lived.

 

Thanks again for your help. We hope to visit Norway in 2015 and plan to visit some of the locations were our ancestors lived.

Your interpretation seems right! Lorentz Christian was born at Kjerulf in Inderøy. His father was a "Gaardmand og Landeværn", e.d. farmer and soldier.
