Hello,

I have a baptism record with a sentence in the last column ("illegitimate children") for the first row that I can't read. Here is the link: http://www.arkivverket.no/URN:NBN:no-a1450-kb20070130640558....

Thanks in advance.

Hi

The note about John tells that his birthday is said to be 10/8 (Aug. 10).

The child John is legitimate, the appropriate column on the left page indicates that. Also the child's parents are already married in the 1865 census with a number of children. The column appears to have been used for a note which may possibly list an alternative date of birth (fødsels dagen).

Note - The permanent page link (rather than the image link) would be a much better option to give in this type of forum. It allows us to zoom in a great deal more which is very helpful with handwriting like this. It is much easier to make out a few of those words when we can increase the size 150%.
