Treasure Chest Tuesday - 1818 Birth Record for Brithe Olsdtr in Voss, Norway

This week's Tuesday treasure is the 1818 birth record for Brithe Olsdtr in Voss, Norway:



The birth record is on the right-hand page, at the bottom:

The information gleaned from this record includes (since I cannot make out every word due to the handwriting and my lack of Norwegian):

*  Date:  4 October 1818 [three entries above this birth record]
*  Father:  Ole Olson of Midthun
*  Mother:  Ingebjor Botolfsdtr of Bystolen
*  Child's name:  Brithe 
*  Sex:  Female (1 in the female column)
*  Sponsors or witnesses:  Ole _____ of Helgeland; Svend Bystolen; Martha Bystolen; Sigri ?????; Gudve Bystolen.

The source citation for this record is:

Voss (Vangen) Parish Church (Voss, Norway), digital images, Arkivverket DigitalArkivet, Scanned Church Records (http://www.arkivverket.no/URN:kb_read), "Voss: 1810-1821, Ministerialbok A10, Kronologisk," Page 135, Brithe Olsdtr entry, Midthun (accessed 12 December 2013).

 I captured these records and wrote about the process in Finding Norwegian Church Parish Records in DigitalArkivet Website (dated 12 December 2013).  I also crafted some source citations then too - the process and result is in A Source Citation for Anna's Death Record in Voss, Norway (posted 13 December 2013).

Brithe Olsdtr was the daughter of Ole Olsen and Ingebjor Botolfsdtr, and was born 4 October 1818 on Midthun farm, Voss parish.  She is my wife's second great-grandmother, who married Sjur Torgersen  in 1850 in Voss, through their son Torger Sjursen Leland.

Dear Randy: How Can I Search Your Blog to Find Reviews?

Reader Carole asked me this question in email recently.

There are really five ways to search this blog.

1)  Since it's a Blogger blog, there is a small search box in the upper left hand corner of the blog page (outlined in purple on the screen below):


I typed for "RootsMagic" in the search field, and a number of posts appeared on the results page.  For a keyword with many mentions, you will have to scroll through the blog posts (you could use the "Find" function on your computer browser to help), but Blogger provides only a limited number of posts on a given page. You can click on "Older posts" at the bottom of the page.

2)  There is a Google Search field on the upper right-hand side of the blog page (outlined in purple on the screen below):

If you put "RootsMagic" in that field, you would get a Genea-Musings page for posts with the word "RootsMagic."  You could click on the "Sort by date" to see the latest.

3)  A reader could use the "Site" feature on Google to search for posts with the keyword(s) - for example a search for site:www.geneamusings.com rootsmagic will find every post with the word "rootsmagic" in it.  All 2,650 of them.

4)  On the right-hand side of the blog, way down the blog page past the Blog Archive and Popular Posts is the "Labels" list.  I add labels to every blog post to help readers, and myself, find posts on topics of interest using Keywords.  Here is the Labels area for RootsMagic (outlined in purple on the screen below):


Blogger helpfully tells the reader the number of blog posts that have been labeled with the keyword.  For "RootsMagic" there are 278 blog posts in the over 10,000 Genea-Musings posts.

5)  The Labels also appear at the bottom of every post.  The screen below shows the labels for one of my blog posts about RootsMagic (outlined in purple):

A reader can click on the Keyword in the label and see the most recent blog posts with that Label on a new Genea-Musings page.

6)  Of course, the keyword, label and search features depend on the blogger using keywords and labels consistently and accurately.  

I hope this answered Carole's question!!!  Perhaps it will help readers of other Blogger pages also.

The source citation for this probate record is:

"Massachusetts, Wills and Probate Records, 1635-1991," indexed database with digital images, Ancestry.com (http://www.ancestry.com : accessed 12 December 2016), Barnstable County, "Probate and Guardianship Records, Vol 1-2, 1674-1742; Vol 3, 1743-1747," Volume 3, pages 527-530 (images 766-768 of 828), John Freeman probate papers, 1719.

Major John Freeman lived a long life and with his wife, Mercy (Prence) Freeman (1631-1711) had 11 children.  The will mentioned these beneficiaries:

*  Son John Freeman (1651-1721), named executor.
*  Son Edmond Freeman (1657-1717)
*  Son Nathaniel Freeman (1669-1760)
*  Grandson William Freeman 
*  "Son" John Mayo (husband of daughter Hannah Freeman (1664-1744).
*  Daughter Mercy (Freeman) Knowles (1659-1745)
*  Daughter Hannah (Freeman) Mayo (1664-17644)
*  Daughter Patience (Freeman) Paine (1665-1746), wife of Samuel Paine
*  "Son" John Paine, husband of Daughter Bennett (Freeman) Paine (1671-1716).
*  "Daughter" Rebekah (Sparrow) Freeman, widow of son Thomas Freeman (1653-1716)
*  Granddaughter Lydia Godfree
*  Toby and Bess, Negroes that John Freeman manumitted in his will

I don't know the parents of William Freeman and Lydia Godfree - they may be children of one of the deceased or living sons.

John Freeman wrote his will on 5 June 1716.  His son, Thomas Freeman, died in February 1716, and his youngest child, Bennett (Freeman) Paine died on 30 May 1716.  His son Edmond Freeman died in 1717, after John Freeman wrote this will but before John Freeman died.  

John and Mercy (Prence) Freeman are my 8th great-grandparents, through their youngest child, Bennett Freeman who married John Paine in 1689.  

There is more to this set of probate records, which I will transcribe next wee in Part 2.

In order to select a specific collection, go to https://familysearch.org/search/collection/list and use the "Filter by collection name" feature in the upper left-hand corner.

My friend, Marshall, has come up with a way to determine which collections are ADDED, DELETED or UPDATED.  Thanks to Marshall for helping me out here!

Each one of the collections listed above has a Research Wiki page (use the "Learn more" link).  It would be very useful if the Wiki page for each collection listed the dates for when the collection was added as a new collection and the dates for major updates also.

Best of the Genea-Blogs - 16 to 22 April 2017

Hundreds of genealogy and family history bloggers write thousands of posts every week about their research, their families, and their interests. I appreciate each one of them and their efforts.


My criteria for "Best of ..." are pretty simple - I pick posts that advance knowledge about genealogy and family history, address current genealogy issues, provide personal family history, are funny or are poignant. I don't list posts destined for daily blog prompts or meme submissions (but I do include summaries of them), or my own posts.


Here are my picks for great reads from the genealogy blogs for this past week:


*  Crowdsourcing by Lindsay Fulton on the Vita Brevis blog.

*  Bombshell by Claudia C. Breland on the Claudia C. Breland Genealogy and Online Research blog.

*  ARCHIVED: Mondays with Myrt discusses NGS' short-sighted policy by Pat Richley-Erickson on the DearMYRTLE Genealogy Blog.

*  The Fourth Pond:  MyHeritage DNA by CeCe Moore on the Your Genetic Genealogist blog.

*  Follow Up & Reflection on ‘What Happened to Genealogy Blogging?’ by Julie Cahill Tarr on Julie's Genealogy & History Hub.

*  15 Tips for Searching Online Collections by Devon Noel Lee on The Patient Genealogist blog.

*  Researching Your Civilian Conservation Corps Relative by Nancy Loe on the Sassy Jane Genealogy blog.

*  The Foundling, a Compelling Story by Kitty Cooper on Kitty Cooper's Blog.

*  Sins of the Father, Part I by Michael Lacopo on the Hoosier Daddy? blog.

*  The Archive Lady: What Are Manuscript Collections? by Melissa Barker on the GeneaBloggers blog.

*  52 Documents in 52 Weeks:  #15 Danish Laegdsruller Army Records by Linda Stufflebean on the Empty Branches on the Family Tree blog.
