That's right Jessica.

Thought I'd try to transcribe the churchbook record. On the bottom entry, right-hand page of the churchbook posted (nice!, thank you), I read the following, roughly, and without Norwegian alphabet.

Corrections, anyone?

Born 16 September, Synneve An=findsdotter (Andfinsdatter), baptized 23 September in XX church (home church?)
daughter of Andfind Johnsen, Anne Gunnersdatter, (XX occupation of father, probably) in Brandvigen,
Sponsors at the baptism:
Niels Salmonsen Hxxxx, Lars Michelsen Rosland, Synneve Jansdatter, Bxxx Barbxx Torbjornssen (from/of?) Brandvigen, Synneve Olsdotter ibdem (ibid).
