Mr. Nedrebö: In order to learn from this - what is the 'enlistment roll' and where is it ? Thanks.

In 'How to trace your ancestors in Norway', found at http://digitalarkivet.uib.no/sab/howto.html you will see that 'Lists of seamen (annotasjonsruller or hovedruller), including information about emigrating 'deserters,' are found in the archives of the enlistment officers (innrulleringssjefen), which are now kept in the regional archives. Of course, these runaway seamen are not registered in the emigration lists.'
