When doing genealogy I find that one of my grandmother's uncles emmigrated from Melhus, Sor-Trondelag, to Canada. Since I have no idea where in Canada, I am wondering if anyone knows where Bergensfjord, of the Norwegian American line went to, after leaving Trondheim Januar 19, 1928. Grateful for any and all answers.

The Bergensfjord departed from Olso on January 19th called at Stavanger and Bergen on the 20th, then sailed to New York via Halifax, arrived at New York on February 1st. It is possible that your grandmother's uncles departed from Trondehim on the 19th on a coastal steamer to be in Bergen by the 20th and embark on the Bergensfjord there. I see in the Digitalarkivet a Brekaas family from Melhus (is that your fam.?) departing from Trondheim on the 17th, and that might indicate a train to Oslo to embark there. (their destination was Canada)

I have been checking this for you. On the passengerlist from Oslo on the "Bergensfjord", there is nobody coming from Sør-Trøndelag onboard. However, if they left Trondheim on January 17,1928, it is most likely that they left on the coastal steamer going to Bergen and then left on the "Bergensfjord" heading for Halifax, where the ship arrived on January 30, at 05:00 pm. Please give me some names on your relative/relatives, then it is much easier to try to find the person/persons.

From Trondheim was it quite commond to take Hurtigruten to Bergen, and get a ship from there. Hurtigruten is a boatline that on this time went from Kirkenes (Norwegian town near Murmansk) and the hole way down to Bergen. Hurtigruten exist today as well, but in this time was it many shiplines that had boats on this Hurtigruten, but most of them is today bankrupt or fushioned. At this time did the boats go around 3 boatarives a week in norhern, and southern routes. This boatline was not so mutch more expensive then the train, and also more flexible for carying big goods. The price for a ride down with hurtigruten was also cheaper. My grandfather was officer on Hurtigruten (Just changed from the line Finnmarske to Nordfjeldske) in 1928. About 2 years later did he go over to Norwegian American Line. I asked my mother today (she is born in 1925), and she told it was commond that Hurtigruten took the folks to Bergen, before they left with a boat to USA
