Farmer Lars Johan Lindberg with wife is number 12 in the 1872 moving-out list in AD Borgvik B:2 (1861-1887) Image 54 (AID: v5080.b54, NAD: SE/VA/13047).
They are among 22 people getting moving certificates for America on that date, 15 Mar 1872.
Farmhand Olof Olsson Lindberg has moving-out number 13 on the next page. The remark below him seems to be about the next man, farmhand Carl Danielson from page 43, who didn't leave.
I don't see them in EMIHAMN, but people from Värmland often emigrated via a Norwegian port. This seems to be Lars Johan
"Linberg" from "Borvik" emigrating 22 Mar 1872 from Oslo to New York on the ship hero, ticket from Inman line.
The Inman Line had no direct service from Norway, so the Norwegian emigrants who chose to travel on the Inman Line ships had to go via England. This was also the case for emigrants from other countries like Sweden and Denmark. The commonly used route for Norwegians and Swedes was by the Wilson Line ships from ports in Norway and Sweden to Hull on the east coast of England. From Hull they had to cross over to Liverpool on the vest coast by train to board the transatlantic steamer.
The ship Hero was a feeder ship, belonging to Wilson Line, landing in Hull or Grimsby on the English east coast, the emigrants would then go by train to an English west coast port and take a larger steamer to cross the Atlantic.
In 1872 Hero was on the Christiania(Oslo) - Christiansand - Hull route.
But there is no "gap" in the departures, so if there was a 6 week instead of 10 day journey, perhaps it was on the "big" ship from England to America.
