Treasure Chest Tuesday -- 1794 Birth of Ole Olsen in Voss, Norway

 This week's Tuesday treasure is the 1794 birth record for Ole Olsen in Voss, Norway:

The birth record is on the left-hand page, the fourth one from the top of 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):

*  Date:  2 January 1794 [I'm not sure how I got this, perhaps from the Vossaboki book?]
*  Father:  Ole Nielsen
*  Mother:  Brita Tormodsdtr of Midtun

*  Child's name:  Ole 
*  Sex:  Male (1 in the male column)
*  Sponsors or witnesses:  Isack Tormodsen Gielle, Lars Siursen Bauthus, Anders Iversen Dagestad, Helga Monsdtr Midtun, and Anna Tormodsdtr Gielle.

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: 1780-1810, Ministerialbok A9, Births and Baptisms, Page 125, Ole Olsen of Midtun (accessed 12 December 2013).

 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 was the son of Ole Nielsen (17637-1818) and Brita Tormodsdtr (1751-1848), and was born 2 January 1794 on Midtun farm in Voss parish.  He is my wife's third great-grandfather, who married Ingeborg Botolfsdtr  in 1818 in Voss, through their daughter Brithe Olsdtr.

I have been having a problem finding the link to my grandfather's family in Norway. His name was George Hill Olsen - his father Otis Fred Olsen - his father Oluf Olsen ---Norway.
