Bojga(sp?)/Boyd 1920's

Surnames: Bojga, Boyd, Hargin
My husband's gfather emigrated from Norway in the early 1900's to earn money to bring his family over. No one remembers his exact Norwegian surname, but it was pronounced something like boy-gah. His wife and son Malvin received their ship tickets from him to sail to the US and meet him in Chicago, but he did not meet them when they arrived. Despite years of searching, he was never found. The family name was changed to Boyd, my husband's father's name being then Malvin Andrew Boyd. Could anyone help me with the probable true spelling of the name, and any info on the ships sailing from Norway to the US during the early 1900's. We would love to find out who my husband's gfather was and about his family, where in Norway they are from, etc. Thank you so much!
