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.

What a cool record! I'm always going through Italian records looking for my maternal ancestors and even though I can't read them perfectly, they're still treasured finds. Do you find that records in Norway go back quite far or is this one of the earliest you've found?
