Treasure Chest Tuesday -- 1796 Marriage of Torjer Olsen and Anna Siursdtr in Voss, Norway

This week's Tuesday treasure is the 1796 marriage record for Torjer Olsen and Anna Siursdtr in Voss, Norway:

The Torjer Olsen - Anna Siursdtr marriage record is on the left hand page:

The information in this record includes:

*  ?enolomar? [engagement?]:  7 May [1796]
*  [names]:  Lan??? ungk: Torjer Olsen Praestegaarden og pig Anna Siursd. Grove
                 Spons. Godschalk Larsen Endeve og Knud Andersen Broen
*  copulerede [marriage]:  23 Juny [1796]

Again, I'm struggling with the handwriting.  I think this says that:  Lan??? (an occupation?)  ungk. (bachelor) Torjer Olsen [of] Prestegaarden og (and) pig (maiden) Anna Siursd[tr] [of] Grove [with sponsors] Godschalk Laren [of] Endere og [and] Knud Andersen [of] Broen.  

Was the engagement or betrothal or banns on 7 May?  The marriage was 23 June 1796.   Praestegaarden, Grove, Endeve and Broen are probably farms in Wangen (Voss) parish.  

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, Marriages, Page 153, Torgeir Olsen and Anna Sjursdtr, at Vangen (accessed 12 December 2013).

Anna Siursdtr (1772-1826) married Torjer Olsen (1753-1827) in 1796 in Voss, Norway, and they had six  children born in Voss parish, including Sjur Torgersen (1804-1889).   Anna and Torjer are the 2nd great-grandparents of my wife, Linda (Leland) Seaver.

 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).
