I am trying to track my great grandmother's emmigration to America. She was born 5 Sep 1863 in Aasen to Nikolai Ellevsen Skogtrø and Karen Johanna Jonsdtr Risbergvald. I do have a copy of the parish record). We understand she emmigrated in 1883 (when she was 19). She was married in America to a "hometown" boy, Ole Benjamin Stene from Frosta whom she knew in the old country because she was a friend of his sister Regine.(He came over in 1882 and I have found records of his travel). She assumed the name of Risberg or Resberg in America. A search for emmigrants with the name Gine who left from Trondheim, do not show her. They are either the wrong age, wrong year, or from a different parish other than Frosta. Could she have left from another port? I have not as yet been able to find census information on her either. Her father died when she was 3 just before her brother was born. I do not know how she and Ole's sister met. She had an older sister Elen Jonetta (22 Sep 1861) who stayed in Norway, and a younger brother Nikolai (6 Jun 1867) who came to America. Without knowing what name she traveled under and what port she left from, I can't find the ships. Any help would be appreciated. You can reply to
Thank you much,
