Re: Help understanding birth record Karen Melene Ingebrigtsdatter and Gudbjorn Olsen

The information available at the top of the first digitized image informs that the location is "Nord-Trøndelag county, Vikna, Parish register...".
The 1801 census was only a few years later but no "Vikna" is listed. A quick check on the Internet explains that Vikna was included as part of Nærøy until 1869... so checked the 1801 census for Nærøy -- looked for farms there that were spelled with starting letter "H". That gave a modest list to choose from and one presented was "Horsenget."

So who was living on Horsenget at the time of the 1801 census?

The same query was posted on another online message forum and got some answers to the questions there -
