Many Swedish and Norwegian People Immigrated to Minnesota in the 1880s. I have relatives from both of my Parents families, that made the long journey, by Sailing Ships, across the Atlantic Ocean to America, at that time, and settled, in Minnesota, or moved Westward from there. These photos, are from my Mother's side, that mainly settled in Minnesota, but relatives from my fathers side, moved west, early on.
The 1st photo is the five Sisters, that were born from Parents that Immigrated from Sweden, and settled in Minnesota(the one on the right is my Grandmother).
The 2nd photo is of my Grandmother, and her four daughters, at a Cabin at Detroit Lake(the youngest is my mother) I like the name above the door "Ish Ka Bobble", he was a Comic Actor in the early 1900's, and it means other things too! :^D
The 3rd photo is from about 1931, of my Mother, and her three sisters(again my Mother is the youngest)
The 4th photo is from 1946(when my parents got Married) my Father, Mother, Grandfather(Norway Immigrant), Grandmother, and my Mother's next older Sister, at my Mother's Parents Home in Minnesota.(Her parents not so happy, her Sister excited for them) :^D
Thank you for looking, all comments are welcome! :^)
