Hi Brian:

I was wondering if you might beable to help me out? I finally located birth records of my grandfather Olai Olson in the Alversund Parish along with his two sisters. I'm having difficulty reading the parish records.

1.) On page 38 No. 12 it has Olai Olsen Titland? (Would Tiland be a farm name) Jan 18,1880 father Ole Andersen Titland, mother Magdeli Monsdatter. Having difficulty diciphering the rest.

2.) On page 33 No. 17 Anna Maria Olsdatter Remme (Also, would Remme be the farm name) April 17, 1878 father Ole Andersen Remme and mother Magdeli Monsdatter. Again having difficulty reading the rest.

3.) On page 44 No 18. Kristini Johanne Olsdatter Hilland or is it Titland? Same with this one the father and mother's name are a little different. Do you think they are Ole and Magdeli? Again have difficulty reading the rest.

Anything that you maybe able to decipher would be greatly appreciated.

With regards to finding when Ole Andersen passed away would that also be in the parish records?

How would I go about finding out when my grandfather left Norway for the United States?

With regards to the Norwegian Census do I search by Titland and Remme farms?

Thank you
