Edit Your Page

WOW, I haven't updated this site since 2007....Facebook tends to occupy most of my time. It's fun to go through all the old pictures & check on the family trees again. I enjoyed doing the research for the site & talking with a lot of great people who helped me in my research & I appreciate it so much. I'll always have a thing for our family ancestry ever since I first read my Great Uncle Eric's book "The Kjelland Family In America". If anyone feels like giving me new information on new additions to the family....marriages, birthdates,etc., send me an email with all the details & I'll try to update this stuff. Hope we can have another family reunion so I can add new photos. May our tribe continue to increase!!!!

Family Photos

  • Harold Kelland- 1941 (164 KB)
    Harold carrying his reconnaisance camera and dressed in full flight uniform for his duty. He was shot down 5 times during the war- one of these times they went into the drink due to sabotage. He was never seriously wounded, but was grazed under the arm once.
  • Harold Kelland (109 KB)
    This photo was probably taken sometime pre-war in 1941. This is how they took their photos in the air. Holding this huge camera and leaning out an open window. Harold's best friend was lost just that way. He leaned too far and fell out the window.
