  The numbers below the parents names refers to some kind of adress
  Sigvart was born 29th of April and his baptism was officially confirmed
 in the Church (Nykirken) in Bergen on 14th of November. The home
 baptism done close to the birth was usually done because the child was
 sickly and might die before his official baptism, and they needed to be
 baptised prior to death or they would not go to heaven. That is way too
 simplistic of an explanation. Dates of baptism can be way after the birth just because the family could not get to the minister and the
 church for any number of reasons. Anyway the father was a Styrmand or
 ship's mate. The mother's name says f�dt Bartz, meaning her maiden name
 was Bartz. Since she is a widow I believe the Weibel was her married
 name from the 1st marriage. The 2.----6.--- in a big city like Bergen
 indicates the residence (here most likely the mother, since it was
 illegitimate) was in section 2 and dwelling number 6. I don't know how
 to find exactly where section 2 was. The home baptism was performed by
 Stiftspr�st (Archdeacon) on the 30th of April, the day after the birth.
 Once the child was well enough to bring to the actual Church, in this case in November, he was presented and officially baptized in the
 Church. I am not sure what the surname of the archdeacon was.
 Something like Flottermand maybe.
