Treasure Chest Tuesday - 1827 Death Record for Torjer Olsen in Voss, Norway

This week's Tuesday treasure is the 1827 death record for Torjer Olsen in Voss, Norway:

The Torjer Olsen death record is:

The extracted information from this record (translated as best I can):

*  No. 34
*  Death date (dode datum):  Wangen 28 February [1827]
*  Burial date (begravelse datum):  6 March [1827]
*  Full Name (full navn):  Torjer Olsen  Gjelle
*  Age (alder):  73 aar (years)
*  Condition:  Gaardman (thanks to reader Mike Poston for this!)

The source citation for this record is:

Voss (Vangen) Parish Church (Voss, Norway), Voss: 1823-1837, Ministerialbok A12, Deaths and Burials, Page 326, item 34, Torjer Olsen of Gjelle; digital images, Artkivverket DigitalArkivet Scanned Church Records (http://www.arkivverket.no/URN:kb_read : accessed 12 December 2013).

Torgeir Olsen (1753-1827) married Anna Sjursdtr (1772-1826)  in 1796 in Voss, Norway, and was the father of six  children born in Voss parish, including Sjur Torgersen (1804-1889).  Torjer died 28 February 1827 and was buried 6 March 1827 on Gjelle farm.  Torjer is the 2nd great-grandfather 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).

This is so cool! I'm following your Norway findings with interest, because my husband's has ancestors from Norway, as well. When I went to the Nebraska State Genealogical Society, I made sure to attend the session on beginning Scandinavian research, since my only experience with ancestors overseas is England, Ireland, and Italy. So I'm learning a lot from your posts about researching in Norway and what can be found there.
