Church Records

Contains the parish registers from the parishes Sande, Bygstad (Svanø), and Vik (Hopperstad, Hove) with Hæstad chapel in Gaular clerical district.

Gaular was called Holmedal clerical district before 1755, when it was divided in two districts - Indre Holmedal (Gaular) and Ytre Holmedal (Fjaler). The name was changed from Indre Holmedal to Gaular in 1911, but these books are all cataloged as if it was only called Gaular clerical district. The records before 1785 are very difficult to read.

Microfilm copies are available at the Family History Library for the years 1755-1930.

Digital images of the church books are online at Digitalarkivet.
