This register is built from telegrams sent from the arrival ports to the local newspapers in Norway. The purpose of these telegrams were to tell the folks back home that the journey had been safe, and that all was well with the emigrants on board.

Reference to newspapers used: Morgenbladet, Christiania Intelegenssedler, Dagbladet, Verdens Gang, Trondhjems Adresseavis, Bergens Tidende and other newspapers.
