I was going through some old emails and came across this. It is from NEHGS.org, and I am a member and wiling to do look-ups.

We are very happy to announce a new database today; Norway: Mormon Missionaries and Emigrants to America, 1886-1900.

This database contains the complete manuscript of Passport to Paradise from Christiania, Norway and Legacy of Sacrifice of Norwegian Missionaries (1886-1900) by Shauna C. Anderson Young, Susan Easton Black, and Ruth Ellen Maness. It provides a listing of approximately 650 Mormon emigrants, who boarded ships docked in Christiania (now Oslo) from 1886-1897 and journeyed to the British Isles and from there to America. This resource work gives names, gender, ages, marital status, occupations, place of residence, destinations of specific ships, European departure dates, and arrivals at US ports. In addition, the work presents biographical sketches of approximately 160 Latter-day Saints who served as missionaries in Scandinavia and some served as leaders aboard the ships carrying Norwegian emigrants. The records in this database are indexed to allow search by: the person’s name, year of the record, record type (Birth, Marriage, and Death), location, and spouse, mother and father names (where available).
