The information listed above is not the complete record of the ship. The information was collected from a multitude of sources, and new information will be added as it emerges

The bark "Fædres Minde" was built at Holmestrand in 1850. She was owned by J. H. and H. H. Holst of Holmestrand. She had a tonnage of 166 Norwegian Commercial lasts. As can be seen from the table above, this ship sailed with emigrants from Norway a number of years. Because the National Archives of Canada [NAC] did not start the archiving of passenger lists before 1865, and the Norwegian emigration records did not start before 1867, there are no surviving passenger lists for these voyages in any of those archives. Timeline to records.
