So I just checked it out, and it looks like a list of siblings. I did not see any mention of parentage, however, it did mention that Stie was in RisÝyhamn. I didnít know that.

Clipping from Borge og Valberg bygdebok. It says, among other things, that Stie Pheiff had been an innkeeper in RisÝyhamn from around 1792, and that he returned to Borge around the time of his mother's death in ca. 1809. It also says that Stie's daughter Ane Cathrine had a child out of wedlock in 1838.

Thank you for that! That was very informative. On Ancestry, there are suggested people that I havenít yet accepted as Stieís parents. They are listed as Kristine Margrethe Friis Flakstad (1736-1809), in Borge/Flakstad area. The father is listed as Johan Fredrik Pheiff Vagle (1723-1778), in Borge/Vagle area. Do you think these are the right parents? I think they could be, as it says Stieís mother died in 1809 which matches with the bygdebok.

That information is consistent with what I read in the book on priests in Flakstad. (I did an update this morning on my last post of yesterday.) I read elsewhere that Stie's father is sometimes named Jonas and sometimes Johan, but the same person is intended in both cases. The Vagle name indicates that the family settled in Borge on a farm named Vagle.

Alright, I will add them to the tree. Was it more common to have longer names in Lofoten? Compared to other branches of Norwegian ancestors in my tree, it seems like the ones that hail from Lofoten area have much longer names ( First, Middle, Patronymic, Residential).

Nothing special about Lofoten. The number of names used would depend on the circumstances, but priests and other members of the state elite often had a (Danish) family name in addition to the patronymic and residential, so there would be more to pick from.

If you're accepting as parents one born in 1736, there are Flakstad parish records earlier than that, the earliest date is 1704:

Thank you, good to know. I just wish they didnít have that gap in the records of the 1770s because then I could find Stieís birth.

That era did not always have the parents names in confirmation records but it will likely give an approximate age and probably a farm name, that might be of help.
