Of all my Norwegian ancestors that immigrated to the United States, only two (as far as I know) went back to Norway for either visiting or taking care of business. The two are Guri Lien (gg-grandmother) and Erick Gunhus (g-grandfather who married Guri's oldest daughter Astrid). In 1875 Guri along, with her oldest son, went back to the Lien farm to either officially divorce her husband Asle who was still living there or to conduct some important business since she was still legally married to Asle. In 1892 Erick Gunhus traveled to Norway evidently just for a visit. Erick, along with his mother, were my first Norwegian ancestors to arrive in the United States in 1849. The picture is of part of the passenger list for the ship S.S. Island that Erick returned to the United States on.
