Notes for Erick Tjostelsen (Garmo)
With a bit more data on his age and ancestry, we can probably go back a fair ways on the Andvord line. I would guess that his father is Tjostel Ericksen and his grandfather is Erick Tjostelsen. It that is correct, then we can pick up his grandfather's probate in 1714 and continue back probably to a 1665 probate.

Notes for Anne (Spouse 1)
There is a Braaten farm in Nordberget sogn, Skiaaken Pr. [check spelling]. This was part of Lom until 1863. There is also another Braaten in Vaage, but the first one seems a much more likely location.

It now looks like the Braaten reference was in error, as the Anne of the following reference is supposed to marry Ole Eriksen Braeden on 1 Mar 1782. That is the one with the 2 July 1755 baptismal date *[b. 2, p. 55]* and the following skifteprotokol: *Nordre Gudbrandsdalen skifteprotokoll: 1752-1764, pp. 693+ [index LDS FHL microfilm 125465 #2]*

I had thought that I had another ref, but looking at that I see it would be for an Anne Olsdatter. It's clear that we have to look at the baptismal witnesses of their children and their marriage record to get clues as to her origin.

Also look at the 1801 census for clues, possibly her parents were still alive and living with them or nearby.
