There is a database of Immigrants who have moved to Ostfold County Norway from Sweden, and Lars Magnus Johansson, Thora Berg's father is listed there. It is good to know the dates, since that may be easier for someone in Ryr parish to find him in the Ryr parish (Sweden) records when he left Sweden. Usually they had to "sign out" of their parish when they left.http://digitalarkivet.uib.no/cgi-win/webcens.exe?slag=visbas...
