The Stabbur on the Vold Gaard

The photo of the stabbur (storehouse) on the Vold farm was taken about 1952 by Laura Vold. The building has been replaced by a newer stabbur. The Vold farm is located across the street from the church in Flaa, Norway. It, too, is centuries old and was originally part of the Gulsvik farm. My great grandfather, Ole Halgrimson Vold (Wold) was born on the farm on 19 March 1832. Ole's father was Halgrim Syversen Wold who was christened 1790, September 26. Halgrim's Parents: Syver and Ragnild Lie Wold. Test (witnesses): Ragnild and Embret Ganderud, Gunild and Syver Wold, Levor Olsen. (Parish record 5/57 Nes and Flå).

Marriage: 17 Feb. 1816. Bachelor, Halgrim Syversen Wold. 27 years old, and Anne Olsd. Sefre maid 23 years old. Best men: Ole Olsen Onsgaard and Parish Clerk Paulsen. (Parish record 7/394 Nes and Flå). Anne was the daughter of Ole Knudsen (Maelum) Sefre and Margit Trulsdatter Kolsrud.
