Hello Susan Ann,

Nils was a transmigrant, which means he departed from Norway on a 
smaller feeder-ship to Hull, England, then by rail to Liverpool where he 
embarked on the transatlantic ship BALTIC (details from other listers)

Transmigration

So, I will now chime in too with the record of his departure from 
Kristiania (Oslo) aboard the Wilson Line feeder-ship SALMO, destined to 
Hull, England.   I haven't searched the Norwegian Digitalarkivet for a 
while, but I did find him, my comments in the column headers in [ ] ...

http://arkivverket.no/eng/Digitalarkivet

Transaction [Registration] date     Date of departure     Given name     
Last name     Marital status [g = gift = married]    Occupation     Sex 
     Age     Date of birth     Domicile     Destination     With cash 
     Line     Ship     Freight (kr)  New occup.      Permission     Remarks

     19.02.1906     23.02.1906     Nils Petter     Johans. Falkenberg 
     g     maler     m     32         Lillehammer (Rødenes)     Chicago 
     100     Elster     Salmo     189             maler         Fripas 
     a. straffet Udygtig

maler = painter
Elster = Ferdinand J. Elster, the White Star Line agent in Kristiania in 
1906
Fripas = Free Pass
a. straffet Udygtig = ... not sure, but could indicate "unfit," for 
Military service ?

Here is the information about the SALMO

Now you have the full picture of his journey ... I'm sure many others 
would love to have their ancestor's emigration "fleshed out" so well.  :-}
