A year or two ago I sent Borge Solem some materials by snail mail, so that you could correct the passenger list at
I have checked it from time to time to see if the changes had been made. They have apparently not been made. Perhaps Borge Solem, who did the original transcription, could be so kind as to correct it? My great-great-grandfather is no. 15 on this list. His name is Trond Jacobsen Buringrud, not Busengrind. If you look at other names on the list, you will see that -rud must be hard to read on the original, and it must look like "rind". Perhaps you could check other, similar names while you are at it! Thanks!
