North Aurdal Bygdebok

PLANS FOR THE NORTH AURDAL BYGDEBOK

What's a Bygdebok?

The bygdebok project (history of the farms and families) started over ten years ago with four writers: Mona Dalen and Bjørn Gunnar Østgård as family genealogists, and Sonja Innselset and Ingar Ranheim as farm historians. Bygdeboks for the other five townships of Valdres have been available for a number of years.  The bygdebok for the most populous township, North Aurdal, has taken much more time.

Below is the planned schedule for publishing the North Aurdal bygdebok, with one volume each year. The first volume is at the printers, the others depend on future township funding.             

 The Skrautvål volume covers the following original farms:

  1. Meisdalen

  2. Lyseng (Ljøseng)

  3. Holdal

  4. Ton (Thon)

  5. Bundli

  6. Bundli

  7. Brattvål

  8. Kjørli

  9. Skrautvål

  10. Bergheim

  11. Berge

  12. Gladheim (Glae)

  13. Gigstad

  14. Døvre

  15. Skår

  16. Sebu

  17. Sebuødegarden

Each of these original farms includes many subfarms (småbruk) and tenant farms (husmannsplasser) not mentioned in the list above.

Watch this page for further information about actual publishing dates for the remaining volumes:
