Ambrose (Ambrocias) Gulliksen Sarsland (Særsland)

Ambrose (Ambrocias) Gulliksen Sarsland (Særsland), born October 26, 1875 in Hjartdal, Telemark in Norway; could be written Ambrosius Sarsland.

Ambrose emigrated from Bergen in Norway for the USA on January 20, 1902.
He arrived in New York on February 5, 1902. That same year his address is:
Seattle in Washington. Between 1903 – 1905 his address is: Tacoma in

In the years 1903-1905, he is the director of a band and orchestra at the Pacific Lutheran Academy. His family had contact with him up to the 1930s. He traveled often and had regular correspondence with one of his brothers. Postcards and letters arrived from him from many places in the USA and from the Far East (Shanghai and Hong Kong). Is it possible that he traveled and worked on a passenger ship and traveled many seas? Most likely, he worked as a musician.

After 1939, his Norwegian family lost touch with him. Because of WWII there was no contact and it was difficult to search for him. The brother who had most contact with Ambrose died in 1946 and, therefore, there was limited searching for him.

His family in Norway has always wondered what happened to Ambrose. Is it possible that he has descendants in the USA today? Would you please help us to find information about Ambrose. His Norwegian family would be very grateful for any help to solve this mystery.
