Information collected on each female emigrant includes her given name, surname, age, place of origin, the name of the ship on which she travelled, the name of the person paying the ticket and the amount of money she brought with her. Some information on women emigrants’ occupations and family relationships to other passengers is also preserved. Most emigrants were of Norwegian background, although Norway was also a transit country for some emigrants.
