Notes for Erik Amundsen Liudahl
According to a 21-April 1987 note by A.N. Liudahl of Devils Lake, ND on the genealogy record of Eric A. Livdalen, the family name was changed from Livdalen to Liudahl sometime around 1899. Accordingly, it is recorded here in its final (Liudahl) form.


Else Amundsdatter Livdalen’s brother Erik “was the great grandfather of Dr. Gene Liudal from Mitchell, SD, whom I have met out here [Colorado]. He researched quite a bit of that branch, but was really happy to get what we had, too. The Tinglestad family is part of that line."

-- Jean Frost


“Notice that the name change did not take place through immigration channels but instead later (1898-1900). ... I still wonder about the name change and why, especially since it did occur at the time of entry at Ellis Island or wherever.”

-- Gene Liudahl in a handwritten note to Jean Frost in August 1993.
