Arthur Bjerke, f. 22 juni 1895 i Kristiania, dro til USA en gang mellom 1910 ( konfirmert ) og 1917 ( innført i militærrullene i New York ). Har ikke vært mulig å finne ham i noen av emigrant / immigrantlistene. Noen som har et tips ? Mvh Arne

You are only looking for immigration information or do you want more information about Arthur Bjerke in general?

If this is him in the New York state census of 1915 it narrows the time of his arrival in US., that he came with his family and although this transcription doesn't contain the year of arrival in US it may be in the actual census schedule :

name: Arthur Bjork
event: Census
event year: 1915
event place: New York, A.D. 32, E.D. 71, Bronx, New York, United States
gender: Male
age: 21
relationship to head of household: Son
estimated birth year: 1894
years in the u.s.:
family number: 4076
page: 111
line number: 28

Thank you, but I am afraid this Arthur is not right person. My Arthus morthers name is Helga and the names of brothers is not correct. Only his mother and one brother was in USA before him. Yes, I am looking for when he went to USA. Only sign of him in USA is in military roll of 1917, and when he goes to Montreal Canada in 1925. He got two children in New York before he left for Montreal. Regards Arne

If Jan Peter has the right man, and there is no reason to believe the he is wrong then he traveled sometime between 1910 and June 1917 when he filled out his draft registration card.

What's the date the card was filed? Was there an occupation listed?

Here is an Arthur Eugen Bjerke leaving through Bergen in 1917, age is not right :

Well, the age & occupation are not right to be target Arthur. But it's not physically impossible for the entry to be him.

Not target Arthur, here is Arthur Eugen in 1910:
