Hallo Rebecca !
As you have been told - there is a Aukland farm in Hjelmeland, Rogaland.
I have listed a Ole Johannes Aukland, b. 27.11.1865.
He married Amalia Tinderholt in Minneapolis June 4. 1895.
They had this children: Martin, Nelfred, Myrtle, Harry and Clarence.
If this is your Ole - I,m very glad if you can share your info with me about the family.
I,m register emigrants from Hjelmeland - and is interesting knowing what happen to them in America.
