UND has a good collection of books. They may have vol 6 but not vol 7. Contact them. They will for a modest fee scan and e-mail you the pages.

Øvre Sandsvær in Buskerud is where the family came from, I do have the Bygdebooks, 8 volumes, but my scanner need some service.

Anders Nilsen Berg b. ca 1790 and Ingeborg Ellesfdatter Rogstad d.1867. Anders bought Øvre (Upper) Bakli 1837 from Torsten Johnsen Ljøterud
- Nils 1817 married 1848 Barbara Marie Hansdatter Muggerud.
- Ellev 1817 em. to USA 1842
- Sjul 1822 d. 1836
- Synnøve Marie 1825 married Johannes Halvorsen Hillestad
- Karen Georgine 1828 married 1854 Erik Kristensen Landsverk-eie
- Grete Kristine 1830, married 1851 Torkild Timansen Lund em. same year to USA
- Ingeborg Sofie 1833 d 1834
- Anders 1835 em. to USA
- Inger Sofie 1838 married Torsten Anundsen Brekke.
- Søren 1842 married Anne Sofie Oppjorda and takes over Bakli from his father 1868, em. to USA with wife and a son Julius Christian b. 1867.
His father Anders Nilsen takes over Bakli again but em. as widower 1870, 80 years old.

The main house is probably from 1767 when the land was cleared, it was a small farm, 6 acres to cultivate where you could sow 1/4 of a barrel of barley, 1/8 of a barrel of mixed barley/oats and one barrel of potatoes, and could feed two cows, 2 sheeps, two goats.
In 1789 it`s mentioned it was a "Bastu" Sauna on the farm and
because of that Øvre Bakli is still called Bastuhagen

The library catalog of the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah indicates that they have the volumes of the books "Sandsværs historie" copied to microfiche which can be ordered and sent to the nearest LDS Family History Center of your choice through the website
The cost for ordering those microfiche and using them at a nearby Family History Center should probably be about 5 American dollars (depending on shipping costs to your area, etc.)

Those books also are listed as available by Inter-Library Loan through your participating local public library. The US libraries listing them in their holdings range from Minnesota to Texas and California to New York.
