All my Norwegians ancestors that came to Amercia either entered through New York City or Quebec in Canada. Prior to 1853 most of the Norwegians entered through New York but between 1854 and the mid-1870's the vast majority of Norwegian immigrants landed at Quebec. I believe I read somewhere that it was cheaper to go to Quebec then New York because the returning ships from Quebec could carry timber from Canada back to Norway where they could sell it and makeup for the cheaper fares. The following is a list of my Norwegian ancestors that immigrated, the year that they immigrated, and where they landed at. The picture is showing a part of a passenger list that has my gg-grandfathers name, Fredrick Ellingson, on it along with the year and month he immigrated and the ship's name.
