There were many different ports of departure available for persons deciding to emigrate from Norway. The Digitalarkivet website alone has over 15 databases of those persons leaving. Norway didn't start seriously keeping track of these departures until the mid-1860s.

I've never heard of any database or records of persons returning to Norway.

There were also a large number of different ports in North American available for persons arriving/departing.
