-hence the Vaege after the surname.
Just a reminder - they did not have surnames as we think of them today, being identified as someone's son or daughter living on such & such a farm - their address. I think it very important to include the farm name in your genealogy program so there is no question about which person of that name you are referring to.
(Vaege f Sppjotvold) - she is living/ lived at Vaege but was born at Sppjotvold.
