Photo Number 717

This is a CdV from the antique shop in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.
Karl Ingelson Favik 9 12 1894 CDV DL Antiques
This photo is marked Karl Ingelsen Favik 9/12 94.
L. Szacinski    1893  Eneberettiget
Karl Ingelson Favik 9 12 1894 CdV DL Antiques back
Fodt den ( Born in?) 24 April 1872
This is a CdV from Christiania (Oslo Norway) The photographer won lots of awards and proudly displays them on the back of his work.

I find it a little strange that this CdV has a name and a date on the front of the CdV.  Perhaps his family was wealthy..or famous or perhaps the card was used as a Funeral Card and sent to relatives in the United States.

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)

Update from Anonymous:
The photographer must be Ludwik Szacinski de Ravics, http://bit.ly/uqb9Et . Born in Poland, refugee after rebellion, trained in France, to Norway in 1865.

In Christiania from 1869. Became royal photographer in 1888, lots of medals.
He died in 1894, but it seems his widow continued his practice until 1916.

Karl Ingelsen is found in the Norwegian census from 1900, at the farm Fevik in Nannestad. http://bit.ly/sA45ds

His father, Ingel Kristoffersen was married to Dortea Jensdatter, the daughter of Kari from yesterday. So Karl is probably Kari's grandson. Dorthea not listed in the census, and Ingel is listed as widower, so she is probably dead by then (in 1887, according to the ancestry.com link from yesterday).

It seems Karl (in 1900) is married to a Mina, and they have two children, Ingvald I. (1897) and Ivar K. (1899). The ancestry-link list only Ivar K.

It seems hard to find any of these names in the emigration records.

The name on the photo seems to be spelled with an "ash" - Karl Ingelsen Fævik.


Update November 20 2011


Tore in Canada knows Karls Grandchildren and will get the photo to them.  I will mail the photo on Monday November 21 2011

  3. Regarding the naming conventions for yesterday. In the ancestry record some of the confusion becomes apparant:

    His name according to the photo is
    Karl Ingelson Fevik (son of Ingel, living on farm Fevik, makes sense).

    His father is Ingel Kristoffersen (son of Kristoffer).

    However, in the ancesty link, Karl is listed as Karl Johan Kristoffersen (his father's surname). (And he has a new given name, Johan.)

    Another confusion:
    In the census record, the son of Karl is called Ivar K. Fevik. At ancestry, this has become Ivar Olaf Fevik.

  5. I think soon - we might be able to determine who might have been the recipients of these remarkable photos.
