My ancestors, Erick Nielson on Stedje, wife Kari Johannesdatter and two children, Jens and Niels immigrated from Fosshaugen on April 7, 1856. Iím looking to find any additional relatives or neighbors that immigrated at the same time. This could help me find where they 'landed' and settled for the first decade.
Thanks, Luella

You'll find them moving out from Sogndal, they are #101-104 on right page.
There was many people moving out from Sogndal this year so you have quite a few to pick from.

Thanks for the link. I understand that those were leaving were numbered beginning with the year. The next column is the day? Then their names. The following column are their ages. What is the last column on the right? Can you translate what is written in that last column? Your help is really appreciated. Thank you.

Column to far right is for the place they moved to, in this case it says "Samtlige til Ame-ri-ca" = All to America.

Luella -
You can find the translated column headings of the standard church records (including on the pages for those persons who reported they were leaving the parish) in the following article -

Thank you very much! This is an interesting and valuable article. It will help me 'read' some of the Norwegian.
