Dypvag Baptism records

Posted: 9 Mar 2013 5:17PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Thorsen, Johnsen, Mogensen
I live in the US and I have been putting my family tree together for a while. I found a lot of the family is from Aust-Agder county of Norway, specifically in the Dypvag area (Boroya is also mentioned quite a bit). Recent surnames are Thorsen, Johnsen, and Mogensen.
Years ago I was told by my grandmother that she had added our names (brothers' and father's) to a "family" church record book in Norway. Unfortunately, I was too young to remember the town or the church name. But I would assume that it is probably the church that my great grandparents were baptized in, back in 1883 which was in Dypvag.
Anyone have any suggestions on a website (in english) that assist in locating the church? I am hoping to add my daughters' names to the book as well.
If any additonal surnames or further info would be helpful in the search, please let me know, I do have part of the tree going back to the 1500's.

thanks
