Surnames: Aukland, Nodland (Naadland)
Rebecca: I have multitudes of Aukland relatives...Minnesota and Iowa.

One (of many) Ole (Ola) Aukland was born April 24, 1884 near Stavenger. Most of his later years were in Eagle Grove, IA. He died July 7, 1963.

My Aukland relatives were from Hjelmeland, Rogaland, that general vecinity. There is a direct connection with the Nodland (Naadland) family, as 2 Nodland siblings married 2 Aukland siblings, and the saga continues. Many of the Auklands and Nodlands settled briefly in Illinois before moving to Iowa/Minnesota.

There are definitely Auklands still in Norway...My parents have visited the "home" area...lots of islands...so many that many times an island was the location of a family farm, and that was about all the room there was.

Other Auklands in South Dakota, and an elderly Aukland (Gudmund...one of many) recently passed away in Oregon.

Many links...

If you have more information or more questions, I'd be glad to share what I know.

My direct relatives sailed from Stavenger abord the Bergensfjord (ship) and arrived at Ellis Island August 1, 1923. "My" Ole (Ola) Aukland was at the time 39 yrs old and brought his wife Sophia and at least 5 children. This information is on the www.ellisisland.org website.

Searching is fascinating. I'd love to know some of your search methods.

Good luck!
