This database contains information about transatlantic ships arriving in American ports. This includes Canadian, North American and South American ports. There are also some arrivals to other parts of the world noted. These are noted because we have reason to believe that they were carrying Norwegian emigrants to those places. The index is created from reports printed in Norwegian newspapers, based on telegrams sent from the company to the agencies in Norway. This is not a complete index of arrivals, but of all arrivals reported in the Norwegian newspapers. The register does not contain information of all ports of call, often just the last port before starting the journey across the Ocean. The ships usually used one day to sail from Liverpool to Queenstown or Belfast.
This register is built from telegrams sent from the arrival ports to the local newspapers in Norway. The purpose of these telegrams were to tell the folks back home that the journey had been safe, and that all was well with the emigrants on board.
Reference to newspapers used: Morgenbladet, Christiania Intelegenssedler, Dagbladet, Verdens Gang, Trondhjems Adresseavis, Bergens Tidende and other newspapers.
