 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 (1737-1818) 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.

The ??? in the death notice for Ole Olsen - Hmd, which is an abbreviation for Husmand. Husmand is the Norwegian/Danish term for a person that owns a house (hus) i.e. he is not a Gmd, which is an abbreviation for Gaardmand. Gaardmand is the term for someone owning a farm (gaard).
