Looking for one Boye Skeie - Valdres, Norway

Looking for one Boye Skeie - Valdres, Norway

Surnames: Skeie
My great grandfathers sister, Tina Borgine (Olsdatter) Bunes married a Boye Skeie from Valdres.

I've googled and found a Boye Skeie who's mentioned a lot when it comes to music, but I can't find anything more about Tina - or any living relatives.

Hope that anyone can help me on my way.

Hi,
Do you know where and when Tina Borgine is born? …or approximately when she gets married?

Regards,
Arna

Have no idea about their marriage, but she was born in Bunes, Nord-Odal, Hedmark, Norway.

Parents Ole Jakobsen and Eli Olsdatter.
Tina was born in 1895.

Tina to the left and a friend of hers on the right (I've been told it's not Boye).

Tina Borgine was born on the Bunæs farm in Nord Odal (Nordre Odalen), Hedmark.
Her birth/baptismal record from those local parish books:
http://www.arkivverket.no/URN:kb_read?idx_kildeid=4056&i...

"Boye Skeie" is very likely a spelling adaptation (an Americanization??) from a Norwegian version and we'd expect him to have been born in a similar time period (now known).

So investigate the young boy found on a farm listed as "Skjeie-Kattevold" in the 1900 Norwegian census in Vang (part of the area called Valdres), Oppland, Norway.

The "handle" to find an answer for your query was
1. to learn the time period (we had to get that from you)
2. to search Valdres for a farm name starting with Sk... in that time period

Valdres is an ancient region in what is now Oppland which included Vestre Slidre, Østre Slidre, Vang, Nord-Aurdal, Sør-Aurdal and Etnedal.

After we know that the 1900 Norwegian census MIGHT find a young boy/man living on a farm beginning with Sk... in a historically Valdres district(hopefully to SOUND like Skeie) and his given name to start with B.... (hopefully to SOUND something like Boye)... patronymic completely unknown.

Using the "easy version" of the NHDC database for the 1900 Norwegian census only returned one likely possible young boy/man to my way of thinking. It isn't proof positive - but a strong likelyhood based on the limited information you gave to search by.

If you are going to look for a marriage record - start searching first in the home parish of the BRIDE or the parish where the bride was known to later live.

Probably Bøie Bøiesen, born 1895, on Skeie-Kattevold in Vang parish http://digitalarkivet.no/cgi-win/webcens.exe?slag=visbase&am...

This page is about honouring Bøye Kattevold (1849-1936) who made a book which now is reprinted (in a number of 500). Bøye Kattevold was the father of Boye Skeie (Bøie), born 1895. According to the text, he also was grandfather of a Boye Skeie who took the initiative to get the bokk reprinted. Randi Skeie, daughter of Boye (the younger) finished the job with the book.
I guess Boye (the younger) was a son of one of the brothers of Bøie, born 1895. I think he is the fiddel player and was a teacher in Øyer http://www.talik.no/content/view/79/86/
