In Reply to: Peter Simonson by Patty Beran of 522

Peter Simonsen was born 31 Aug 1867 in Sveio, Hordaland, Norway to Simon Petersen and Guro Olsdatter.
See record #69 -

In the 1865 Norwegian census his parents are shown to be living in Fjelberg, Hordaland -

In the 1875 Norwegian census they are shown living on the same Sveio farm which was listed on Peter/Petter's birth/baptismal record -

The 1875 census indicates that both the parents were originally from "Aalunds S., Fj. Prgj." which can be deciphered as Aalund Sogn (Aalund=ělen Sogn=parish) (Fj.=Fjelberg Prgj.=Prestegjeld=clerical district).

The records at would appear to show Simon Petersen was born in Fjelberg 15 Dec 1833. The LDS databases and the original parish records as scanned and available for your research at the Digitalarkivet website should get you started.
