Parish handwriting IP: 188.8.131.52 Posted on June 10, 2016 at 06:05:44 by Dan Dutcher
Hello, My name is Dan Dutcher and I am a Knutson (or Knudsen) descendant. My 3rd great grandfather, Henrik K., (his last name used to be Stiansen until he immigrated) was the first person that I know of to come to the U.S. So far I've gotten back to his father Stian Knudsen and Stian's father, Knud Pedersen. I've located Stian's marraige record in the Brevik Parish registry, but I'm having a hard time reading the gothic script they used. I was wondering if anyone could help me. In the attached picture, the marraige is number 7. I'm trying to figure out the 4th column, the place of birth and residence of the groom, Stian. Any help would be much appreciated!
