Omund Jorda and Ingebor (Haldorsdatter Mæland)

Here is a xerox copy* of a photo of Ingeborg (Haldorsdatter Mæland), daughter of Brita (Sjursdatter) and Haldor Nilsson and Omund Jordal, son of Sigri Gunnersdatter and Ole Larson.



I do not know when this photo was taken, though if it were a wedding photo it would have been March 17, 1894.

Ingeborg (Haldorsdatter Mæland) Jordal

Here is a xerox copy* of a photo of Ingeborg (Haldorsdatter Mæland) Jordal and Mrs. Jacob Selgistad on the right.   




I do not know the relationship of Mrs. Jacob Selgistad to Ingeborg.   Gilbert Jordal was the son of Anna (Larsdatter Jossendal) and Gunder Jordal and the nephew of Ingeborg and Omund Jordal.  He is not in the photo so the description would indicate this photo came from the collection of the Gunder Jordal family.

If this photo was taken prior to March 17, 1894, Ingeborg had not yet married Omund.    I have only seen a 4 photos of Ingeborg, including this one.     If anyone has family photos from the Jordal line, please contact me.

Marta (Martha) Olsdatter Jordal, daughter of Sigri Gunnersdatter and Ole Larson had married Ingebrigt "Albert" Knudtsen Strand in 1882.   Martha passed away sometime between their marriage and 1896 when Albert remarried.

Here is a xerox copy* of the only photo I have seen of Martha.     It does not state the name of the man sitting down but it must be her husband, Albert Strand
