The location was actually in Ullensvang district of Hordaland, Norway (in the historical fjord area often known as Hardanger.) The farm names were Øvre Sekse and Midt Sekse but that couple later resided on the farm called Øvre Børve also along the same fjord and within the parish district of Ullensvang.

Odmund's (Aamund) parents were Torstein Jonson and Madli Knutsdtr. Anna's parents were Vigleik Askjelson and Ingebjørg Kristofersdtr.

The Ullensvang area is documented with parish church records as early as 1689 and at least two different published series of books showing the history and genealogy of the people who lived on the various farms there.

No, but I can tell you places to look and research.

LDS Family History Library has microfilm copies of the history/genealogy books published about early Ullensvang (written in Norwegian of course). Those can be ordered and will be sent to the LDS Family History Center you decide is most convenient to you.
The titles are:
"Odda, Ullensvang og Kinsarvik i gamal og ny tid"
"The ættarboks (Norwegian genealogies) for Øyfjord, Ulvik, Kinsarvik, Odda, Udlesvang"

https://familysearch.org/learn/wiki/en/Ordering_Microfilm_or...

The original Norwegian church parish records for Ullensvang are also available on LDS microfilm but are also available online for your use.

The Digitalarkivet web site has been adding scanned images of the original Norwegian parish church records for anyone with Internet access since November 2005.

The Digitalarkivet web site - http://digitalarkivet.uib.no/cgi-win/WebFront.exe?slag=vis&a...
An English option is available by clicking on that word from either the left hand column or the blue link bar along the bottom of the homepage.
The scanned images are available from the homepage link "Skanna kyrkjebøker" [Norwegian version]/"Digitised parish records" [English version] which is listed along the left hand column and from the blue banner of links along the top section of the homepage.
Clicking on "Skanna kyrkjebøker" [Norwegian version]/"Digitised parish records" [English version] will bring up another screen and listing to choose from. Choose "Lesa skanna kyrkjebøker" [Norwegian version]/"Read the digitised parish records" [English version].
After you've clicked on that link and a new main page has presented on the screen be sure and read the instructions that are available from the Digitalarkivet for navigating the scanned records. The instructions are available in Bokmål (official Norwegian), Nyorsk (Norwegian), Davvisámegiella (Saami), and English.
Recommended basic reading are the "Startsiden" [Norwegian version]/"Main page" [English version], "Brukerveiledning" [Norwegian version]/"User's guide" [English version] and "Om tjenesten" [Norwegian version]/"About this service" [English version].

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 -

Anyone can order microfilm or microfiche from the LDS Family History Library and have it sent to a Family History Center - we don't have to be members of the church.

Interesting. That hasn't been true at any Family History Center I've visited -- everybody/anybody paid the same price - which was quite nominal.

You can find a great deal of information about the family and ancestors of this couple in the new FamilySearch Family Tree area (currently replacing New Family Search) reachable through the LDS familysearch.org website.
