In reply to your question on this page, Haakon's father was Svend, since he's Haakon Svend's son. Sigrid's father was named Bryngel, or Brynjulf, whichever variation is on the records.

I do have a suggestion of what you could do next, to either verify what I found, or rule it out. It would be another good verification if you could find the exact birthdate of Lars Haagensen in the parish registers. (After about 1600, the local parish ministers were supposed to keep good records about birth, baptism, confirmation, marriage, death, and sometimes they recorded who was given permission to leave the parish, (move) and where they went.

These parish registers are not online for Voss at that time, I've looked. But they are in the possession of the LDS - Latter Day Saints/Mormon research centers. You should go there, and they will help you figure out which microfilms to order delivered to your local LDS research center.

If you look up Lars's baptism date, the entry should tell his birthdate, and for the parent's wedding, it should tell their home farms, perhaps fathers names at least, and birth years. Then go back in time on the microfilm and get their birth baptism information. You can also see if there are any confirmation records, you will have to scan some years worth, maybe from about the time he is 13 until maybe 15 or 16 until you see him.

When I did a search at familysearch.org, this is what I found, and the film number, etc. are at the bottom.

Håkon Sveinson, born about 1819, married 1848 with Sigrid Brynjulfdatter Bulko. They had children: Lars born 1850, Brynjulv born 1853, Svein born 1861, Ivar born 1865, Synneva born 1856, Anna born 1858, Kari born 1872.

You should also try to find the other kids, and the parents wedding, which may tell their home farms and fathers' names.

Also, check 1869 to see if there is any permission or leaving of the parish for Lars. It may say what his destination was.

But I totally agree with Stephanie, you do need to first verify Lars. Then if I'm totally off track, boy was I barking up the wrong family tree.
But I don't think I have been.

Good luck at your local LDS family research center.
They seem to have the Voss information on microfilm that you need. Also look up the siblings, which may add to your information.
