I am trying to find out which ship my great-grandfather traveled on to America in 1854. His passport was issued in Hedmark on 26 April 1854, and it is likely that he traveled to Quebec in May 1854, then on to Iowa or Wisconsin. There were a good many other people from Vang Parish and Ringsaker who left about the same time. I wonder if anyone who uses this forum recognizes any of the people below and might have information on how they traveled to America. Passports were issued, or they are listed as emigrants, in April 1854 for the following:
