I am having difficulty with these entry for Karen Melene Ingebrigtsdatter and Gudbjorn Olsen

Karen Melene-
I figured out the Mother and Father and they live in Horsenget?, but most everything else I can’t seem to understand...and is there an actual date?

Gudbjorn Olsen-
The same questions... I understand the Mother and Fathers name, but that is about it.

The date is written 'centered' just a little above on the left page when the baptism you're looking at is third event listed on that day (second baptism) -- 8th Sunday after Trinity. (Church calendar).
The type of event is listed left column, child's given names are underlined, then writer abbreviates a bit of Latin 'Pat.' for the father, 'Mat.' for the mother (those should be easy). After that are listed the witnesses/sponsors. That's it.

The second link you just edited in to the posting is in the same format as the first but I'm unsure what the day is.... definitely a Sunday for both baptisms.

Thank You, I appreciate your help!

On Gudbjorn Olsen's entry can you make out his Mothers last name?

Those are NOT the links to give. They only worked for me because I clicked on them just shortly after you posted them. The images attached are of little use because they don't tell us WHERE you are working and have very limited zoom capability. The address listed by your browser will only work for a few minutes.

Working direct links to the scanned images on the Digitalarkivet can be copied and pasted from the desired page from a display option available. At the top of the scanned image page is an option labeled "Bildeinformasjon:" [Norwegian version]/"Image Information"[English version] which is by default set to "Ingen" [Norwegian version]/"None" [English version]. Change that and magic is available. Of the three options I like "Øverst" [Norwegian version]/"On top" [English version] because it puts the additional information across the top of the page and is usually easier for me to see.

The first line "Kildeinformasjon:" [Norwegian version]/"Source information" [English version] is a really nice summary of the source of the information and is wonderful to have for making detailed source citations, footnotes, etc.

The second line "Permanent sidelenke:" [Norwegian version]/"Permanent pagelink" [English version] is the best line to capture if you want to save the exact URL location or share the actual scanned image and the source information. It allows the full capabilities for zooming in and out to best view the image and informs the recipient of the exact location, book and other details to be able to find WHERE you found the information.

The third line "Permanent bildelenke:" [Norwegian version]/"Permanent imagelink" [English version] is the best used to print a copy of the image or to save a copy of the image in a jpg format computer file. This line does NOT also capture the source information and therefore is NOT the best line to copy to share online when requesting help or assistance in deciphering the image found.

It doesn't include any more than her given name, Maren.

Check in the 1801 census - it should be there (I'm assuming she survives until 1801.)
