Gjestal area resource - FANTASTIC

Classification: Query
Surnames: Espedal, Håland, Lomeland, Edland, Eidland, Rage, Gjesdal, Nevland, Nesse, Madland, Kyllingstad, Bjelland, Sikvaland, Vølstad, Nordås, Oftedal, Svihus
I found a fantastic resource for the Gjestal area for early families in this area. It is in Norwegian so I used Google Translate to decode the basics as I went. It is called:

"GARDS-OG ÆTTESOGA FOR GJESTAL UTGJEVI AV GJESTAL KOMMUNE" by Søren Arneson.

In English the title is: "Farm and Family history of Gjestal for the municipality Gjestal.

This website has a lot of the people listed and their relatives (and it is in English):

The main surnames (regions at the time since surnames were based on birth location) are: Espedal, Håland, Lomeland, Edland, Eidland, Rage, Gjesdal, Nevland, Nesse, Madland, Kyllingstad, Bjelland, Sikvaland, Vølstad, Nordås, Oftedal, Svihus

Hope it helps anyone researching Norwegian family members from this area.
