Found a fantastic resource!  I have access to a book printed in 1916 that lists Norwgian, Swedish, and Danish imigrants in New York from 1630-1674 with biographies.  The biographies are fairly detailed!

That sounds like a great find! What is the title?
"Scandinavian Immigrants in New York, 1630-1675." John O. Evjen

I just found a reprint (2005) on-line for $50.00

Here's the description:

This is a collection of biographical articles on Norwegian, Danish, and Swedish immigrants who settled in New York between 1630 and 1674. The biographies are based on ship passenger lists, parish records, church records, court records, and legal documents, and include information such as dates of birth, places of origin, marriages, names of children, types of occupation, and references to sources. Also contained in the book are appendices on Scandinavians in (1) Mexico and South America, 1532-1640, (2) Canada, 1619-1620, and (3) New York in the 18th century, and there is a fourth appendix on German immigrants in New York between 1630 and 1674.

(1916) Reprint 2005. 464 pp. Illus. paper. ISBN 0806305010
