This thread has been hijacked onto an entirely different inquiry than was intended by the original poster.

Nevertheless -- the family of Christian Stensvold was from Gran district of Oppland, Norway.
Here they are in the 1900 Norwegian census -

The daughter Palma Terese was born 24 Jun 1904 in Gran.

The family entered the US through Canada in 1905 giving their previous residence as "Christiania Hadelund". Christiania/Kristiania is an old name for Oslo and Hadeland is a very very old name for the region which includes Gran in Oppland.

So - Yes, the family is found leaving Norway through the port of Oslo on or about 11 Oct 1905 giving their intended destination as Minnesota --
