Norway Heritage

Norway Heritage is the best place on the web to find information on Norwegian emigrants and the ships they sailed on. The passenger list database (1825-1873) contains 62,121 entries from 425 voyages, and elsewhere you can search or browse for ship names, shipping lines, and Norwegian agents. If you know only the year your ancestors departed, browse through the Ship Index (1825-1925) to narrow down the possible vessels. Vessel information and pictures are available for dozens of foreign lines, so check here for details even if your relatives didn't pass through Norway.
