My Gosh, Olav - - I didn't realize that Meldal was close to my friend's area of Orkdal! Thank you so much for offering.
I'm trying to get one more step in my ancestry chart:
Ane Olsdatter, Meldal was born in either 1842 or 1852. Birth records of her two children give two different birthdates for her. I believe the 1852 date is more correct. The reason I am sure it is Meldal is that her grandson had written her surname as "Medal".
Her father, according to her marriage record (7 Nov 1882 to Ove Henrik Jensen, Selnes at Stjorna, Bjugn, Sor Trondelag), was Ole Ingebrigtsen - occupation- painter.
If it's convenient, I'd like to know what her birthdate is and what her parents names were. Thank you so much for offering.
