I'm looking for anyone who may have the Fjære Parish Bygdebok. In particular I would like to find out any information there may be in that book for the following farm and family, approximately 1820s - 1860s:

County: Aust-Agder
Parish: Fjære
District: Frivold
Farm: Skaregrøen (1865 census)

Syver Pedersen b. abt 1771, married to Kristen Margrete Aanonsdtr b. abt 1757

Son - Peder Syversen b. 3 Sep 1797 Froland d. 16 Apr 1859 Fjaere, married to Johanne Jensdtr b. abt 1791

3 Children that i know of:
Jens Jorgen b. 28 Mar 1819 Landvik
Kristen Margrete Pedersdtr b. 23 Mar 1823 Fjaere, d. 1828
Syvert Pedersen b. 20 May 1827 Fjaere

Jens Jorgen Pedersen married Jorgine Sorine Terjesdtr, 3 Children:
Johanne Elise
Petrine Terisia
Jens Jorgenius

Syvert Pedersen married Ingeborg Sorensdtr, 3 Children:
Peder S.
Ingeborg Sofie
Julie Karine

There is also a Lovise Marie Pedersdtr who is listed as a foster-child of Jens Jorgen Pedersen/Jorgine Sorine Terjesdtr. Born to Peder Syvertsen/Caroline Larsdtr but not sure which Peder Syvertsen that is.

The family was in Fjaere parish by the end of the 1820 and definitely through the 1860s till some point and then most moved on to Grimstad. There is a big hole in the Fjaere parish records due to a fire and I'm hoping that the Bygdebok may have more information about the family.

I have a copy of the Konsmo Bygdebok so I have somewhat of an understanding what may be in a Bygdbok.

Any information regarding this family would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
