I’ve “rescued” an old photograph of Ferdinand SCHMIDT and his bride along with two unnamed witnesses which was taken at the Hingtgen Studio in Wahpeton, ND. The photograph appears to have been taken in the early 1900’s with Ferdinand and his bride appearing to be in their 30’s or 40’s at the time. Ferdinand is also identified as the brother of John S. SCHMIDT. I’m hoping to locate someone from this SCHMIDT Family so that the photograph can be returned to the care of family. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley

I've "rescued" an old photograph of Victor LARSON of Wisconsin which was taken at the Reynolds Studio in Decorah, IA on the occasion of his graduation. Victor appears to be in his 20's at the time the photograph was taken. In addition to his name, someone has written "Cardinal Gibbons" on the back the photograph. I suspected that Victor might have been a graduate of Luther College in Decorah, IA as another photograph recovered from the same source belonged to a member of the Luther College class of 1911. In researching the college yearbooks I do find Victor Ferdinand LARSON in the Class of 1911. Based on limited research I was able to locate the following information regarding Victor and his family: Reverend Victor Ferdinand LARSON was b. 26 Mar 1888 in Stoughton, WI to parents Torstein Davidhaug Tosten LARSON (1853-1946) and Susanna or Susannah O. BOLSTAD (1866-1945). Victor was one of 7 children born to this couple including, Victor Ferdinand; Lucille E. or Suceil; Seline or Saline “Sally” Olive; Arnold Odean or Odien; Thelma Eveline or Evelyn Maybelle; Bernice Adeline; and Nordahl or Nordal Sanford LARSON, all born between 1888 and 1905. Victor was married twice, first to Hattie Mabel MUELLER MILLER (b. 1886 in Illinois-d. 1921) about 1915 in Winnebago Co., IA and second to Regina SKORPEN (b. Apr 1885 in Iowa-d. 1979) on 20 Sept 1922 in Barnes Co., ND. Victor had a total of four children with his first wife Hattie including Ruth Lucille LARSON (1915-2006); Marjorie Harriet LARSON (1919-2002); and Edward Norman LARSON (b. 4 May 1921 in Valley City, ND-d.1996). Victor died 25 Apr. 1988 in De Smet, SD. I am hoping to locate someone from this LARSON Family so that the photograph can be returned to the care of family. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley

A photo of my second great grand parents, Christian and Margarethe (Diede) Zimmerman, in front of their home shortly after they had arrived in the U.S. They were Germans whose family had migrated to S. Russia (Ukraine today), and then to the U.S. to escape the growing Bolshevik movement. Hundreds of their family members died in Russia. They were happy to get to the U.S. with all their children, a few of them ahead of Christian and Margarethe, including my great grandfather, Jacob.

We believe this photo is of Mary Martha Hauser, born in Spillville, Iowa in 1873. Her parents were immigrants from Bohemia. She settled in Adams, North Dakota, with her husband, Peter Levang. If the picture is, instead, from the 1920s, it is likely one of Mary and Peter's daughters.
