Profile Information

How did you learn about us?
My grandfather & his sisters settled in Kittson County in the late 1800s. I still have quite a number of relatives in the area, some of whom I've met. I have a deep interest in family history and genealogy; this led to connecting with a person who led me to the museum website.

Christine my name is Gary R Eklund

My Great Grandfather Louis N Eklund and Great Uncle Andrew M Eklund Jr both lived in Halock in the late 1800 and I believe platted the Eklund additions to the city. My Grandfather George A Eklund was born there. My Great Great Grand father Andrew M Eklund came to the US from Sweden and on the voyage over changed his name from Ole M Olson to Andrew M Eklund. Wondering if we are related

Thanks for your reply it’s dificult tracking down relatives when they change there names. Also my relatives move several times. 2nd Great Grand father was one of the founders of Halock then moved west to Washington state and was one of the founders  of South Bend Washington
