Hi. My great grandfathers last name was heidal

I’ve hit a brick wall at his father Peter Heidal born in Alten Finnmark about 1820.

Any help would be awesome

spelling is always a pain but you have a name and place so do an advance search and do not use the surname it gets you nowhere try and find a farm name or residence and pay attention to the names of his children and how they could be named.
