Church Records[edit | edit source]

Holum clerical district contains priest and sexton records from the parishes Holum (Holme), Øyslebø, Mandal, Hasle, Hartmark and Laudal up to 1788. On September 26 1788 were the parishes of Hasle, Mandal and Hartmark divided from Holum clerical district and became their own clerical district. In 1970 was Holum combined with Mandal clerical district, and Øyslebo and Laudal became parishes in Marnadal clerical district. This put an end to Holum clerical district. However, the farm Østre Kjær of (Holum) was transfered to Øyslebø parish.

The 1664-1666 census was taken by the local parish priests. It lists the name of the farms, names of farm owners (including widows), the sons of the farm owners, male farm hands, cottagers and their sons, and the ages of each person. There was another census taken by the civil authorities at this same time. Both censuses should be searched as they supplement each other. This clerical census is more complete.
