Hi Carol!

The modern spelling of Wærdalen is Verdal, a municipality in Nord Trøndelag county. Lillesan sounds like Lillesand and there may be such a place in Verdal. I have found about 21 people in Verdal on the 1900 census with the name Ydse but since you gave no names, I didn't pursue it. That census is the latest one available.
Go to: http://draug.rhd.isv.uit.no/folketellinger_engelsk_britisk.h...
Type Ydse in the surname slot, scroll down and check the Nord Trøndelag box and hit 1900. You may find them. Let me know if you have any problems.

I would like to hear anyone researching the YDSE family from Lillesan, Waerdalen, Norway. Family is related to the ELLINGAN family from Webster, Sask., Canada.

My great grandmother was an Ellingsen from Saskatchewan. Her name was Oline. She married Elias Lund from Evansville, Minnesota. I would be interested in any additional information you have on the Ellingsens in Canada and before.

In your list of Ellingsen ancestors you mentioned Sefanias Ellingsen, born 1875. Do you know if his father was Elling Pedersen and mother Gunnil Sivertsdatter? Sefanias would be my GG grandfather. His daughter, Oline, married my G grandfather Elias Lund from Evansville, Minnesota.

Hi, Gregory

I'm not related to YDSEs or ELLINGAN/ELLINGSANs but I found a wonderful letter a few years ago at an antique sale. I bought it because it contained a lot of genealogical info and I thought it would have a better chance of me finding a family member who wanted it, than it would sitting in a box of photos at a travelling antique shop.

Here is the info contained in the letter. It is written by Anna YDSE of Lillesan, Verdalen on Jan 26, 1913. I won't type out the whole thing, but here are the main points, translated. It is written in Norwegian and addressed to Mrs. Mary ELLINGAN of Webster, Sask.

Anna is the daughter of Oluf YDSE, who is Mary's uncle. Anna came to Verdalen in 1906. They bought Lillesan (I'm assuming it is a farm) which is close to a place called Rinbret. Anna and her family lived in "Jarlen" prior to Lillesan, and Mary's father visited them there.

Anna has a sister named Martine, who at the time of the letter was married and living in Salberg. Her brother Johan worked on the railroad at Davre / Dovre.

Anna has a son, three years old whose father is in Canada. Anna hopes to live there soon, like Mary. Apparently Mary visited Norway but did not get to meet Anna or her family because the Ydses were in Sweden.

I get the impression that Anna is using her maiden name, YDSE. This idea may be further supported by the existence of a family in the 1900, Stjoerdal, Nord-Trondelag census that fits the bill:

Oluf Ydse b. 1849 in Verdalen & wife, Mali
Children:
Martine Ydse b. 1880 in Hegre
Anna Ydse b. 1883 in Meraker
Johan Ydse b. 1887 in Sweden

Since it seems Anna's father was Mary's father's brother, then Mary's maiden name would have been YDSE as well.
Ellingan or Ellingsan would have been Mary's married name.
At the time this letter was written Mary had small children.

Ellef Ellingson was my great grandfather. I know no relatives past him. He came to Foxhome MInnesta around
1881 or 1882, with his wife Maria (b.1842)
Can you tell me how the Ellingson's on the list are related.
What is Ulvild?
We are goin to be near Verdalen in June 1213, and would like to see where Ellef live.
Any information you can give me on his family would be
great.
Do you live in the Us or Norway?
Ellef and the other immigrants named their church in the Vukku
after the Vukku church in Verdalen.
