Iver Erichsen - Vik Parish S&F Need translation

Recommended Posts

Searching for parents of Iver Erichsen.  Found record of his birth in Vik Parish (April 1745), but I can not recognize names of his parents that would normally appear in a birth record.  There are what look to me like names of sponsors, but nothing I can recognize as the name of a parent and other words I can not recognize.   I don't see anything like "Erich".  Record appears at https://media.digitalarkivet.no/en/view/11753/50.

This link is better: https://www.digitalarkivet.no/kb20070523640032 (it is permanent and without the period at the end).

You are rigth. The parents are not mentioned. This is customary in 1700s records. Child and witnesses are mentioned.


"Døbt den 22de aprilis Iver Erichsøn Følæ.

Joensøn Nummedahl. Medhielp: Joen Truolds
