Help Us Identify These Photos


Several Ostrom photos found their way to Sweden; we don't know when exactly.

Monica O. of Varberg, Sweden writes to us inquiring who these people might be. She thinks they may be some of her ancestors emigrating from Sweden. Monica knows of several surnames: Ohslund & Brahee. But we don't know if these names are associated with the people below.

Monica later followed with two ideas:

1. My grandmothers uncle Emil Persson born 1868 23 aug. He emigrated 1889 17 may to Carver Minnesota.

2. My grandmothers aunt  Anna-Stina Andersdotter or Peterdotter. She changed her name to Brahee. She emigrated 1882 2 may to Carver Minnesota
