Thought maybe this would be of interest. Norwegian Census 1900 Occupation: Police officer The apartment cost 324 kr pr year It says he was born in Vang, Hedmark. Today this is a part of Hamar. You might want to check this out, since you have Bergen as his place of birth. It could be the brick wall breaker:-). His wife is born in Drammen. Good luck
