Gjerpen Bygdebok The author has worked for years to collect this information. He has decided to put it on the internet for free.

Holla- and Lunde Family This website contains most of the families in Holla from 1600-1700 and up to 1900. At the moment there are portions of some families from Lunde, which will be completed utilizing the same period of time as Holla. (The list also contains families not connected to Holla and Lunde.)

Sources used are church records, transcription of churh records by Ole Bjørn Darrud, Gard Strøm and Nils Buverud. Arne Johan Gjermundsens transcription of Probate records from Holla. Solumslekt by Leif Biberg Kristensen has been very useful. Some are taken from "Holla I", and much information have come from Halvor Sigurdsen, found in old records in Telemark, - concerning Holla. Brian Langkaas from Alberta in Canada has contributed with much information about families, from both Holla and Lunde. Transcriptions published on the web, by Digitalarkivets, has also been useful, and digitised parish registers have now made it even easier to control the information. Gunnar Oppheim's "Nokre ætter I Lunde" and "Flåbygd - Ætter og folkeliv" - together with - "Lunde herad med Flaabygd - Gardesogur og Ættetavlur" by Olav Stranna has been a very important source of information. The web-based Ætte- og gardssoger for Kviteseid has given lots of information about the families in Flåbygd. Information about families in Drangedal has been found in Bjørn Edvin Holte's "Slektregister for Drangedal". "Hørtesoga", and "bygdebøker" from Bø, Sauherad, Heddal, Seljord and more have also been used.
