Just wondering if someone might be able to help me. I am trying for find information about my Great Grandfather and his arrival and departure in Quebec. From information that I have obtained from the State archives in Oslo he arrived in Quebec in 1880 on board "Golden Horn" a norwegian ship. This information also states that his period on this ship was from 1880 to April 1881. There is no further information.
What I would like to know is if he actually arrived in Quebec and where he went from after his time on this ship or where I would be likely to find information about him. He was a Norwegian Sailor and if this information that I have is true he doesn't not appear until 1884 in Australia. I do not have his actual arrival date in Australia either and as far as I can guess at this stage he swum from where I am not sure.
I would be very greatful if someone could help me or advise where I might be able to find any information out about him and his time in Canada. As I live in Australia it is hard for me to be able to search in Canada. But if someone could tell me where I can start I would be greatful. Thank you all for your time, it is greatly appreciated.
