Norwegian Connections: From Arctic Fjord to American Prairie
In the tradition of his two earlier volumes for Genealogical Publishing Company, Ships from Scotland to America, 1628-1828 and Ships from Scotland to America, 1628-1828, Volume II, David Dobson has compiled a new list of vessels that traveled from Scottish to North American ports between 1830 and 1860. The purpose of the volume is to enable researchers to link their immigrant ancestors' first whereabouts in America with their port of embarkation in Scotland, and thus possibly the emigrant's region of origin. Based mostly on sailings documented in contemporary Scottish newspapers, Dobson identifies 1,500 ships that made nearly 5,000 transatlantic passages during the thirty years under investigation.
