How to cite the Redalen area

Hi ~

Before 1821, the Redalen area was in Ringsaker, which is in Hedmark fylke. In January, 1821, it was transferred to the Biri parish of Oppland fylke.

What are recommendations for citing the location of a person who was born on a Redalen farm before 1821, but died on that farm after 1821, to avoid the confusion that it might seem that the person moved?

My own inclination would be to list the birth as Gard, Ringsaker, Hedmark for the birth and Gard, Biri, Oppland for the death, with a footnote of the change in the boundaries.

Any other thoughts?
