Michaelis (29 Sep) 1745 burial of Barbra Olsdatter
Lærdal Kirkebøk 1711-1752 p.100


Her probate record is dated 18 Sep 1745, 11 days before the record of her burial.  There are two possible explanations for this.
1. It was a "living" probate, in which her assets were distributed prior to her death.
2. More likely, she was actually buried earlier, and the date of the record is when the priest was there for the service.
