This was almost a Full Circle instead it is a Real Photo Postcard from Debbie.

Ruth Schivalm/Schwalm ?
The photographer was Carl O Erickson of St Paul Minn.
It is a NOKO postcard used from 1907 to 1920.
Update from MJM:
From Minnesota birth records: Ruth Marie Schwalm born 31 Dec 1899 St Paul, MN. Father Wilhelm Schwalm, mother Hulda Tetzlaff.

Update from Iggy:
Ruth Schwalm lived in Ramsey County, Minnesota in 1920. She was the head of the household's daughter, 20 years old, and identified as white. Ruth was born in Minnesota around 1900, and both of her parents were born in Germany. One parent was named William Schwalm. In 1920, Ruth was not married. She had three siblings named Louise, Henry, and Alfred. She could read and write.
Now for the rest of the story.

I sent a copy of this blog post to Donald (Arlenes Son) in late January of 2014.
I got a note in June 2016 and it has been sitting on my desk.  I am finally around to it!

I have only recently found this letter.  This is a picture of Arlene as stated.  I have a copy of this hanging in my dining room!!  Her father was an electrician and her mother a power seamstress.  Arlene married Clarence Kammerer and they had five kids (2 boys and 3 girls).
I am enclosing a picture for your use.  Perhaps you can use this.  I have no idea who this is or what year.  There is a name on the back and a St Paul photograph.
I do not need info of this person as I don’t see her in any family tree on either side of my family.
Best Wishes, Debbie

So it is not technically a Full Circle, the photo is still available to other relatives.  I was surprised that Debbie didn’t want it to give to a cousin or as an extra to hand down.
Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Hmm, that is a bit odd. It's such a sweet photo of the little girl.
