I am researching my history and I have hit the brick wall.
The ancestor I am having trouble with is my Mother's Grandmother maiden name (Dorothea C. Pearson). She was born in Norway, said to be from Bergen. It is listed in Census documents that she arrived around 1852. In a family document it is stated that several family member arrived about the same time, Great Grandmother Pearson, Annie, Dorothea, Oscar, Amelia, and Drucilla.
I am trying to find out exactly where in Norway they were from and if I still have any family there. Also, what they did for a living and why they left Norway for America.
