Could someone please let me know what this town name is? I am looking at a baptism record, the last one on the page and it says the mother Britha Estensdatter is from Eiby, and the father is from Voss, but under the Forældrenes Bopæl (residence) column, what are the towns listed? Something about Eiby and the father's town looks like it says Fadereno.
Here is the link from the Digital Archives:

It says "Moderen Eiby, Faderen ubekjendt", which translates to "the mother: Eiby, the father: unknown"
It also says the info is given by the childs mother (Brita). Thus, at the time of the christening, she likely didn't know Sivert's whereabouts.

Brita Østensdatter Eiby
Sivert Andreassen Dahl from Voss
Godparents: Haldor Haldorsen, Olava Nikolaisdatter, Morten Andersen, Kari Østensdatter
Their 1st illegitimate child.
