(can you please not write in "CAPS" unless you have to, for low vision -
CAPS are difficult for most of us to read and should be saved to STRESS
words, names or ship names)
I found Ingeborg and the children on the Digitalarkivet
======== (you will have to paste this URL into your browser)
There are seven in the group on the Anchor Line ship SCOTIA from
Christiania 1870-10-11 direct to Glasgow, Scotland. Their residence is
shown as Drammen, and their destination as Calmar.
Ingeborg Knudsen 46
Carl Andreas Olsen 11
Sofie Olsen 4
Neils Olsen 6 months
Inger Olsen 6 months
Maria Olsen 10
Olava Olsen 8
Anchor Line only ran a "feeder service" from Norway to Scotland from
1869-1871, when they discontinued because it was not profitable. Maybe
they moved to Drammen after Ole left, and stayed there until their
departure. At the moment I can't find Ole on the Argonaut, with that name
- Ole Anderson - or that age, 39. I have copies of Argonaut for 1869 and
1870, it was a sailing ship, and sailed direct to Quebec. There was also a
Wilson Line 'feeder ship' called Argo which sailed to Hull, England. If
Inger an the children arrived via Quebec, then this ship below would be the
most likely. If they arrived via New York, I can't help with a ship name.
