Dear Kathleen:
I saw your message about your grandfather. My maiden name is Erdahl. However, the spelling changed from Erdahl to Erdal in the late 1800's I believe. Unfortunatley, I have very little family info. on my father's side of the family, and he died when I was 13, and my grandparents shortly after. I do know that they came from Norway, I believe in the 1800's also. Do you have any more family information? I do know that my great-grandfather's name was Ludvig Erdal born 1872 Died 1923. He came from Norway.

Is their any connection to a a Hans Erdahl born in 1878
in Norway, who settled in Chicahco area around the 1900's
Hans Erdahl (Erdall on marriage license to Eva Pratt in 1904)
I learn Erdahl is not a true last name, it just referes to the town this person was
living at the time he came to America. Hans Erdahl and Eva Pratt had three children
Ellen, Eva Marie Erdahl, (my grandmother who married Roy McCoy in 1925 in Chigago, Illinois
and Philip Erdahl. Hans Erdahl killed himself, due to the break up of his marriage.
