Travland to America

The Travland family left Stavanger, Norway on May 8, 1868 sailing on the frigate Hiram and arrived in Quebec, Canada on June 22, 1868.

A more complete passenger list can be found here.

After arriving in North America, the Travland family eventually settled in Milan township, DeKalb county, Illinois.    Additional information about Milan township can be found here.

Were it not for the actions of the Travland family in 1868, it's possible the Finnestad family may have chosen another locale in which to immigrate.
