Icelandic Settlers of Beaulieu Township

Beaulieu Township is located in the central portion of the west edge of Pembina County, North Dakota, north of Mountain and east of Cavalier. Neighboring townships are Akra (east), Thingvalla (south), South Olga (west, in Cavalier County) and La Moure (north).

The list below contains the names of Icelandic families known or believed to have lived in Beaulieu Township during the settlement period. The names are arranged in the same manner as the index of the Beaulieu Township settlement book.

This webpage will be enhanced, hopefully soon. To see what a somewhat complete township webpage will contain, see Advance (Avon) Township.

Currently the only publication dealing specifically with this township is the 2002 Summary of the Pioneer Icelandic Settlers of Beaulieu Township, which contains brief summaries of many of the families. Considerable additional information has been gathered since that time and a new volume is anticipated in the near future.

As is obvious from the table above, not all the pioneer Icelandic settlers have been identified. For many other families there is minimal information. I would greatly appreciate hearing from anyone who has any information they wish to share on these or any Icelandic immigrant families or who wishes to participate in project.
