Your link took me to the wrong page - I had to move backwards in the linked book to see Berger's #9 record.

Before his father's name is an abbreviation 'hm' -- notice it also appears before several other fathers names on that same page. Michael gave you the translation for that abbreviation.

The writer appears to note a location - probably residence - AFTER each parental couple on the page. So what you see after the mother's name is probably the name of where they were living at the time of the birth/baptism.

Many times studying the pattern of the entries on the page will give you context to figure out what it means.

The family in the 1865 census then living on a small subfarm (plass) under the Lindstad farm(s).
