Update

I haven't been very active in pursuing my research the past few years and have noticed that my entries on the Opera blog website are no longer available to view.    I have deleted the previous link to the Opera blog.   I don't recall which entries I had posted so there are a few that will most likely be forever lost.

With a little motivation I may post the backlog I'd accumulated since my Opera blog posts.

Ingebor (Haldorsdatter Mæland) & Omund Jordal

Here is the only (clear) photo I have of my great grandparents, Ingebor (Haldorsdatter Mæland) & Omund Jordal.




































My guess is that this photo was taken in the late 1940's or early 1950's, probably at their residence in DeKalb, Illinois.
