Additional Information:

Submitted by Ross Schipper, 11. januari 2017
Amund Jensen (my great-grandfather - mor-far-far) was a carpenter and cabinet maker by trade. He was born on Mar 27,1815 at Stadumsengen, Gran, Hadeland, Norway. He married Berthe Johnsdatter (Jan 26,1823-Mar 28,1903) at Grans Hovedkirke on Nov 23, 1843. They had two sons: James (Sep 16,1848-!!) and John (May 6, 1853-Sep 14,1936) my maternal grandfather) Amund was living at Østenbranden fram in Hadeland when he emigrated to the US. Although they are missing from the information concerning the ship Christiane, Amund sailed with his wife (Berthe) and two sons (John and James). Amund died in Argyle, Wisconsin soon after their arrival in the US - probably of a ruptured appendix. The date we have for his death is Mar 1861 !!. This must be incorrect if the ship did not arrive leave Christiania until Apr 24, 1861. Source: genealogical research performed by Mildred Helen Schipper (Amund's grand-daughter). Included visits to Grann, Hadeland, Norway, visits to Amund's grave in Argyle

Hunting Passenger Lists

The information in the Norway Heritage Project passenger list database mainly covers New York lists 1828 - 1850, and Canadian lists 1865 - 1875. In some cases information about Norwegian emigrants has also been added from other sources like newspaper announcements, voyage accounts or other random records. There are also entries from the Norwegian Police Emigration Records. For more information read the article
