Re: Anderson/Andersen Trondheim, Norway Emigrants

Perhaps only a coincidence - there was a Petter born 23 Sept 1857 in Hvaler, Østfold, Norway to Petter Jacob Andersen and Maren Andrine Olsdatter.
Østfold is a long long way away from Trondheim but his father was a 'skipper' (captain of a ship).

I don't find your information to match anyone in Trondheim for the 1865 or 1875 Norwegian census and I also haven't found him in the emigrant registers for that city/port. You could scan through the birth/baptism records of the several Trondheim church congregations to possibly find your match.
