The postcard was sent to Mrs.N. Iverson Fosston Minn.

This is an AZO card from 1918 to 1930, it could have been taken by either of the Anderson Photographers.

I hope this cute little boy with the long legs and the white button boots finds a home.

Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again:)

Melvin Oliver Tollefsrud (2 May 1917 - 16 May 1999 in Gardner, Cass, North Dakota) was the son of Helmer O. (1887 - April 16, 1980) and Oline (1889 - February 18, 1973) Tollefsrud. Melvin had a younger sister Myrtle May (abt 1922).

  4. With a name as unusual as that, hopefully it will be relatively easy to find family for another Full Circle. Thanks to Iggy, there's quite a bit of info already. I didn't see any researchers' trees on Ancestry.com that matched the details, though :(

    Here's hoping...

  5. I suspect Mrs. N. Iverson was Mrs. Nathalie Iverson, the wife of Nels Iverson. Their find a grave memorials state while they lived in Fosston, Minnesota, they are buried in the same cemetery as the three Tollefsrud's listed above.

    http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=39352965 (Nels Iverson) - furthermore, I suspect that it is their son, Oscar (listed in the 1940 US Census) that wrote the postcard to Bertha Tollesfrud, the wife of Ole Tollefsrud.

    So, to summarize, Nathalie Iverson nee' Tollesfrud was one of Helmer's older sisters (he had 4) and Bertha was their mother.
