Dette er nok feil skip, jeg leter etter et dampskip ikke seilskip.

At the end of 1998 I think I a found a lead.
By the help of the LDS Familycenter in Oslo I ordered this film from The National Archives of the USA, Washington.
I got 2 films containing two hole months after departure Oslo to be on the safe side, an there I think I found the right
Hans Pedersen.
