Surnames: Hetland
Nels Johannessen Hetland was born in Bratt-hetland, Fister, Rogaland, Norway 1887 - 1987. He emigrated to US in 1904. In 1910 he lived in Reynolds, Nebraska and in 1917 -1918 he did Army Service in Dement, Ogle, Ill. and he past away in Dec-197 in Rochelle, Ogle.
I found in US sources that he have 4 children:
Clair M.Hetland 1919-1997
Melvin J.Hetland 1920-1998
Arnold Hetland 1923- ?
Margery Hetland 1924-?
I have also found his wife Ingeborg Hetland but have not found her last name. But I found her in the 1930 US Census.
But Nels could also been married to a Frances Hetland.
Nels Hetland was half brother of my great grand mother and I would like to fill in on my pedigree.

Do anybody have more information about desantens family of Nels ?
Any information or question could be mailed me on:

Hello Geir,

I hope this message finds you well.

My name is David Hetland and I live in Minneapolis, Minnesota - USA. I did a recent Google search of my grandfather, Clair M. Hetland, and came across your post on

My father, Richard Hetland, is the youngest son of Clair, who passed away in 1997. Their family grew up in Belvidere, Illinois, where Clair was a town Mayor, State Police Officer, and World War 2 veteran. His wife was Loretta and they had another son named William (Bill) who currently resides in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

Are you still interested in gathering more information about your Hetland lineage in the United States? I would love to help you if I can.

Thanks so much and I look forward to your response.
