Gjertrud Sivertsdatter - Selbu, Sor-Trondelag Help

Recommended Posts

I am trying to locate several documents in the church books on digital archive for my Norwegian ancestor: Ole Johanssen Haarstad and Gjertrud Sivertsdatter. More specifically, Gjertrud Sivertsdatter. 


I cannot seem to locate a birth/christening/confirmation record for Gjertrud Sivertsdatter. I cannot seem to locate Gjertrud Sivertsdatter wedding record either. Can you help me locate one or both of these records in your archives? I cannot read Norwegian, so I am guessing that there are a bunch of clues to where these records may be that I am missing. 


I saw in the 1865 census that Gjertrud was born in Selbu parish, but I cannot find her birth record. I assume also that since their first child was born in Selbu that they were married in Selbu, but I cannot find their marriage record. I am hoping to locate one of these records so that I can find out the names of Gjertrud’s parents and grandparents.

Her father’s name is Sivert Johnson. I am not sure about her farm name. Vigen or something else?
