Please add any more information that you know about him from the United States, otherwise it is very difficult to make that jump back over the ocean to Norway.

Is this your Ernst?
name: Ernst Aleksander Rosenlund
event: Draft Registration
event date: 1942
event place: Fort Worth, Tarrant, Texas
gender: Male
birth date: 20 Jan 1884
nara publication title: World War II Draft Cards (4th Registration) for the State of Texas
nara publication number:
arc identifier: 576252
film number: 4147855
digital folder number: 004147855

If so, I found his emigration from Oslo, Norway in 1905

If this is not your Ernst, please include some information from the USA that might help. Places where he lived, anything.

It is possible that he took the name Rosenlund after coming here. Do you have him on any censuses that tell when he came to the USA?

Is this him on the 1940 census?
