Scott Ueland (grandson of Sigurd Ueland Sr. and Harriet Louise Scofield Ueland)
Many thanks to Anne Ueland Bailey, Sigurd Ueland Jr, Clara Ueland, Alex Boies and numerous others for data they provided to help make this possible!
My nephew plays soccer for Stanford University and his father (my brother in law) had mentioned that there was a soccer practice field named Ueland field. So in a visit to Stanford this summer we stopped by and took this picture.
Dear Harriet and Frank, Congratulations on the grand occasion of your 66th wedding anniversary. Loved the pictures of the two of you on our Heritage web-site. We're sending many loving wishes for a beautiful day, today, and always. Sissy & Sig
Never published, this 1971 autobiography by Andreas Ueland's son Sigurd is an interesting read. Entitled "Sense and Senility", it covers a wide variety of topics including his best known law case. His interest in quotations is well reflected in the book, as he cites many of his favorites.
The first 1931 pamphlet is entitled "A Minor Melting Pot" by Andreas Ueland.
The full title of the second 1931 pamphlet is "Evolution of Religion with a Hymn to the Creator by Bjornstjerne Bjornson Written for the One Hundredth Anniversary of his Birth" by Andreas Ueland. A mouthful, no?
Thanks to Clara Ueland for making them available. Click "View Full Article" and then double-click on the PDF file within.
Not everything is easy to find on this website! Here are a couple of things worth hunting for:
Notes attached to family tree members: In order to find the notes attached to many of our ancestors, click on the "Family tree" tab. From there, click on "People". Next, type in the name of the person you want more information on. Then, click on the name you want from the search results (which may be just one person if the name is unique). Lastly, on the line that begins with the word "show", click on "Notes & Sources". Not easy to find, but pretty darn cool when you get there!
Family weblinks: Right now I have some weblinks to family-related information on the front page of this website as "News Articles". The rest can be found by clicking the tab labelled "Activities" and then clicking on "Links". Soon "News Articles" will only be for PDF files or other...
Attached is a PDF of a story entitled " The Ueland Family and Their Homes on Interlachen Terrace, Minneapolis". This two page narrative was written by Rolf Ueland's widow Margaret on August 9, 1988. Thanks to Margaret's daughter Clara Ueland for making it available!
