Emigrasjon til Canada

Recommended Posts

Bente Borgen

Ole Thordsen/Toresen var født 31.10.1849 i Nord Aurdal.

Etter konfirmasjonen flytter han til sin onkel på Selje i Sogn og Fjordane hvor han bor i 1865.

Jeg mener det er han som drar fra Bergen til Quebec 23. april 1868 med "Claus Heftye".

Noen som kan gi meg råd om hvordan jeg kan finne ut mer om ham i Canada?

 

Mvh

Mange reiste via Canada, men dro med båt og/eller jernbane derfra til USA i denne perioden (fra 1850):

 

'There were several factors behind this, but the revoking of the British Navigation Act in 1849 was an important one. The revoking of this act made it possible to return home with lucrative cargoes. Another contributing factor appears to have been that the authorities in Quebec were not so particular about the number of passengers on board foreign ships. This made it possible for the shipping companies to carry a greater number of passengers to Quebec than they could to New York. Quebec took over as the main point of entry for Scandinavian Immigrants. Sailing ships would carry emigrants westbound, and timber eastbound, so they were able to offer cheap affordable fares.'

Takker for svar.

Det kan jo være at han havnet i Minnesota, men slektninger av ham dro seinere til Canada ( i 1940-årene) og de dro da til slektninger.

Men det trenger jo ikke være slektninger på hans side, selvsagt.
