The first photo is of the entire page in the parish register and below it is the enlarged, cropped image of the marriage of my great-great grandfather Peter Andreas Peterson Melhus and his first wife, Anne Reitan. I am descended through his second wife, Anna Margret Kvam. I’m not going to lie. Doing research in old parish records can be challenging. This particular record is from 1860. I don’t speak (or read) Norwegian. There are often abbreviations that are used in these records also. It takes some getting used to. Once I’m in a groove and have been looking through them for a while, it gets easier (because I know which items are in each column). I have a dictionary and some Norwegian friends to help me out.
