Submitted by Kendall Mellem, 07. juni 2012
This man is mentioned as Mr. Brynildsen (unfortunately, with no first name), along with his wife Anne, in Soren Bache's diary, published under the name _A Chronicle of Old Muskego_ by the Norwegian-American Historical Association in 1951. The editors were Clarence A. Clausen and Andreas Elviken. (See pages 69, 102, 109-110.) Bache says Anne, especially, had become a "true friend who could give much good advice in feminine affairs." He laments that the Brynildsens never felt at home in Wisconsin and decided to return to Norway after only a year.

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
