[#60938] Norweigan Ancestor

Recommended Posts

Gjest Ryan Monger

I am looking for some help!! I am trying to trace one of my ancestors that came from Norway. I know that his name was Knute (or Kanute or Knut) and his surname was either Olsen or Monger. In the United States his name was Knute Olsen Monger. I think he may have changed from Olsen to Monger upon arriving?! He was born (I think!) in Bergen on the 29th of August 1859. I think that he emigrated to the United States of America from Norway in 1880. I am looking for a record of Birth or a record of Emigration (or both!) If you could help me, I would be very grateful!

This looks like a good candidate for the person you are looking for, Knut Olsen Manger - leaving Bergen 5 May 1880 Lenke . He was born 1859 and last home address was Brudvig.

One Knud is christened at Manger on 3 October 1858, birthdate given 29 August same year (it is a year off of what you indicated, but still . . . .)# 163 at page 124 [url="http://www.arkivverket.no/URN:kb_read?idx_kildeid=1927&idx_id=1927&uid=ny&idx_side=-135>Lenke . This same Knud got his confirmation at the same church 28 September 1873 (# 1 at pag 150)LenkeCensus 1865 for 1261 Manger gives this family

Given the fact that this Knud had a brother named Johannes aged 14 at Census 1865, the Johannes Olsen Manger - born 1853 - leaving Bergen in May 1880 is most probably Knuds brother. I think this is their arrival in New York 24 May same year, with the Inman Line ship ss 'City of Chester' (# 471 and 473).
