Hi Listers,

I've been trying to find a passenger list with my great grandparents on it.
They left Balestrand, Sognefjord early in 1854. I have verified in two places
that they left Balestrand at that time. Questions:
1) Is it safe to assume they went to Bergen to board a ship?
2) I have e-mailed Jan Overvoll & found that
http://www.uib.no/hi/leitfemi.htm doesn't start until 1874.
3) Jan suggested http://www.hist.uib.no/arkiwerket/index-en.htm but I get
"404 Not Found"

Any suggestions? And where would I find names of passenger ships leaving
Bergen in 1854? Yim Yohnson
