Subject: Need Bygdebok for Stav(ae)rn/Stavern Telemark

There is a Stavern further up the coast from Porsgrun, on the way to Oslo.
It is in Vestfold and only a few miles from Larvik. Could this be the
place you mean? There are old town histories for both places and a
bygdebok for the parish of Brunlanes. If you think this might be the place
you seek, I'd be glad to look through the books.
