Hi Randijb, I was contacted by a person working on cemetery records for Thor, Iowa, they think they have found a gravestone (damaged) for Jacob Knutsen, born Dec. 1873, died October 10, 1896. It could be your Jacob, contact clarklanejr@yahoo.com

If you are Norwegian, maybe you can read the records here:

Choose the correct parish.  But from what I see, even the Digital Archives don't seem to have the records that go back far enough.  I wonder how they got that bygdebok information?

I have figured out that this area is Møre og Romsdal, but what was the historic parish or municipality?  That would help to search the records.

This information looks like it maybe came from the Bygdebok for that area?  The farm and family history books that contain the genealogy of those farm owners and their families.  The information in the bygdeboker is based on the actual parish record books.  Those scans are available free through the Digital Archives from Norway.  They are also available through the LDS - Latter Day Saints, as microfilm that you can send for through your local LDS research center.

I like to combine both resources.  Sometimes you can use the LDS website - familysearch.org, with the Digital Archives from Norway. 

Now to your question.  From what you provided, Jon Ivarson was the farmer  from 1756 to 1777? 
The place is Ytre Hauge 2, Sande, in Sandvik municipality.  Clarify for me if I am wrong.

Jon Ivarson was married twice.
first with Mali Ellingsdotter born 1716, died 1759, the legalities following her death took place in 1759. (sk 59) She was from Lianes 0106. Maybe.
2nd wife Anne Eliasdotter, married 1761, she died 1773, and the legalities following her death were in 1774. From Ose, 0806. 
At least 9 children were from the first wife.
Their daughter d. Anne Jonsdatter  1745 - 1833 is the one you are interested in?

Wow! The website looks great. I took Norwegian air last summer from Oslo to Stockholm, and the airfare came to less than 100 dollars, and it only took about an hour.  Good experience.

Thank you for the updated web address.

In our area, US Bank seemed to be the only card offered with a chip in it. I think our problem was that we had that card set up so we had to sign for our transaction, and we should have had it set up to go to a PIN transactiom. Our regular debit card with the pin worked fine, but you are safer using a Visa card, in case of fraud, your bank accounts can't be wiped out.

This summer we got a visa travel card with the chip in it, and we still had problems in Oslo and in Sweden with it not working, at two places. We carry three different types of cards now, just in case. Uffda.

Hi Sue, there are some archived articles on Norway which are still worth a read - about many different topics.  Welcome!

Hi Gus, glad you are having a good time in Arizona.  I have been in Florida most of the winter, but ready to go back to Minnesota and have a real springtime.  I'm actually going to Norway in June, we're going to visit relatives of mine and my husband's, going as far north as Otta, north of Lillehammer.

I'm watching season 2 now of Alt for Norge, and as I was watching, I saw there is another contestant from my hometown - Paul Haugen.  I paid my 79 nok for a month of viewing, and will have to renew that to see the whole season.  Worth the money. However, it would be great if they put the directions for subscribing to the site in English too.  Very tricky if one is not fluent in Norwegian.

The funeral home named in Karl Vatne's obituary online would also have contact information for his daughter Becky, since she probably made the funeral arrangments and paid the bills.

You could send a letter asking if they could forward it to Becky.

Both Karl Vatne and his 2nd wife Verniece's funerals were from this church.
Maybe you could write to them and ask for help in finding your relatives.

Our Saviour's Lutheran Church
1015 Veneta Ave.
Bremerton, WA 98337
