On this record the child's name is written as Baaranna Christine - she is born out of wedlock. Her mother is listed as "Pige" (unmarried woman) and her father as "Unkarl" (bachelor). It is his first and her [illegible] "leirmaal" = leiermål. Hers must have been more than one.

Good list of translated words - http://home.online.no/~otjoerge/files/word.htm

Good information about translating the formats of Norwegian parish church records during various time periods, many of the basic terms used and understanding how to use the information should be studied at this web site -

Not the slightest idea what the numbers are for -- but upon further thought they MIGHT be a reference to another document -- perhaps in court records?? There sometimes were court activities involved with illegimate births.
