Welcome to the Wrolstad Family History Web Site!
In the preface to
the Wrolstad Family History published in the autumn of 1978, Professor
Gerhard Naeseth, the author and principal researcher for the book, wrote:"Our
basic idea has been to make this family history flexible enough in organization

produced the book in loose-leaf form because we hope that you will make

on various members of your family -- and add entries for new members".

who compiled the family history had never envisioned the potential impact

can with relative ease submit material to flesh out earlier entries,
fill in the decades of void and, very importantly, add entries for new
members. Those three cousins, all of whom are deceased, were Merald
E. Wrolstad (A2G1-B), Jeffrey H. Wrolstad (A2D5-C) and Professor Naeseth
