«Fedje og folket» (Fedje and its people) is a book about those who live and have lived at Fedje. It starts in the 15th century, when we have the first written sources where Fedje is mentioned. From the end of the 16th century wc know the names of most of the leaseholders at Fedje. From about year 1700 it is possible to find out the family relations, so one can draw up family trees with roots back to that time. The information in the book is up to the present.

The main sources are: At the State Archives in Bergen: Parish registers (starting in 1699), registers of change of inheritance (from 1702 to 1972), censuses in 1666, 1701, 1801, 1865, 1875, 1891 (at the State Archives in Oslo) and 1900, mortgage registers from 1770 up to date, law court books from 1642 till 1790, military records 1749-1800, and register of emigrants 1874-1924. At the State Archives in Oslo: State accounts from 1590 till 1772, registers of estate in 1661, 1665, 1723, 1802, 1819-1845 and 1863, and the arcives of the Department of the light-houses. In the literature list are listed the books that have been used, among others family books of other districts, and books with copies of old letters (from about 1200 till 1660). The oral sources have been important, that is conversation and correspondance with people relating to Fedje. They have also been co-operative in lending old photos. There are about 530 photos in the book.

There are 7 «farms» at Fedje, with their own number (called «gardsnummer» or «gnr») from No 167 to 173. Each place of residence (or domicile) has in addition another number, called «bruksnummer» or «bnr». The book is built around these numbers, so that the families are placed where they lived. Each family has got its own number from no 1 and upwards, and each child a letter from a. In this way it is possible to find from where people came, and to where they moved at Fedje. If they came from or moved to places outside Fedje, the name of community or country is usually mentioned, as well as name of spouse.

The family information is stored in a computer program called «Slekt & Gård» later transferred into «Brother’s Keeper». It will be possible to buy family trees etc. from this program. If this is desirable, please contact the author.

Note on online translation

As Fedje og folket is now available in wiki format, it's easier to use online translation services such as Google Translate. The Norwegian language has two distinct norms, bokmål and nynorsk. Please be aware that the text is in nynorsk, and that most online translation services and programs favour bokmål. This might lead to a slightly lower quality and potential misunderstandings in online translations. Some online translations will also translate names, such as Google translating 'Fedje' to 'fat'.
