People sent home from Norway : a survey about people sent home before the dissolution of the union (English)
Between 1814 and 1905 Sweden was in a union with Norway. During this time the two countries collaborated in many ways but there were also several differences between them. Swedish people went to Norway, often to find work, and this essay aims to examine who they were. An archive in Värmland, which people returning to Sweden during the years 1894 to 1903 were registered in, gives information about these people. From this we learn that they were mostly men in the ages 15 to 44 and they came from all over the country. They were sent back for different reasons. Most commonly because they were out of money but also because they were sick or had committed a crime. The number of people sent back did not change over the examined years.
