Treasure Chest Tuesday -- 1818 Marriage of Ole Olsen and Ingeborg Botolffsdtr in Voss, Norway

 This week's Tuesday treasure is the 1818 marriage record for Ole Olsen and Ingebor Botolffsdatter in Winje, Voss, Norway:

The marriage record is #30 on the right-hand page, the bottom entry on the page:

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

The source citation for this record is:

 I captured this record 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).

Ole Olsen (1794-1871) was the son of Ole Nielsen (1737-1817) and Brita Tormodsdtr (1751-1848), and was born 2 January 1794 on Midtun farm in Voss parish.  Ingeborg Botolfsdtr (1792-1872) was the daughter of Botolf Magnesen (1752-1819) and Asa Larsdtr (1767-1844) of Bystolen farm in Voss parish.  They are my wife's third great-grandparents through their daughter Brithe Olsdtr (1818-1895) who married Sjur Torgersen (1804-1889) who came to Wisconsin in 1855 and settled in Deerfield, Wisconsin.
