Anna Sjursdtr (1772-1826) married Torgeir Olsen (1753-1827) in 1796 in Voss, Norway, and the mother of six  children born in Voss parish, including Sjur Torgersen (1804-1889).  She died 16 August 1826 in Gjelle farm.  Anna is the 2nd great-grandmother 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).
