Thank you Jenna - That is vital information for a successful search.

The emigration record lists the family's last residence as Frosta (Frosten) in Nord-Trøndelag, Norway.

The youngest child is likely to have been born there and can be found in the Frosta parish records of births and baptisms which gives more information about the father and mother.

So, now knowing the name, birth year and occupation of the children's father the family can be found in the 1900 Norwegian census -
