Advice before editing this pre-1700 Levåg øvre profile?

0 votes

I have information to contribute to the profile of Anna Salomonsdotter (Levåg øvre) Rimbareid. This is what I can add:

  • View bio layout and the link below.

This is the source I'm using: Anna Salomonsdotter LEVÅG

  • I will review Norwegian entries. This being my first pre-1700, I almost "pulled back" and not submit. I have  such an interest in my DNA relationships, without language expertise,  I'd like to work on getting educated as I have a trip being planned for Ireland in April, 2021, and perhaps a trip to Norway will lead me to a deeper understanding.

Should I contact one of the pre-1700 projects or know about any style guidelines before proceeding? Thank you!

Hi Stephen:

The source you seem to be proposing is an unsourced profile. I'm afraid that is not an acceptable "Reliable Source" for a pre-1700 profile.

A proper source would be something like this: SAB, Stord Sokneprestembete, H/Haa: Ministerialbok nr. A 1, 1725-1744, s. 65, This is the actual burial entry for her from the parish book. If you look on the left-hand page in the right-most column (headed "Døde", which means "deaths"), the first entry you will come to is "Anne Salmonsd:" (which is an abbreviation for Anne Salmonsdatter, or Anne daughter of Salomon). The text to the left of this (which is under the general heading of Fest: St. Michael, or the feast day of Saint Michael, which is 29 September) reads "begr: Christopher Levaags Qvind gl. 49 aar", which translates as "buried: Christopher Levaags wife, age 49 years".

For a good general introduction (in English) to these church records and how to use them, see
