Full Circle 123

This Full Circle began with an email .

March 15 Hello, the Ustmos were my great Aunt and Uncle.  Annie was sister to my mothers mom, Minnie.  I would love this photo! Thank you!!  Lauri

Hi Lauri, I am happy to send you Photo #1598  Joe and Annie Ustmo.  I will need your mailing address.  Connie at Forgotten Old Photos

Thank you so much!

Wonder how this could have gotten to Detroit lakes... What a mystery! 

Mar 16

Hi Lauri, I will get it ready to mail.  Did you do a search to find it?  I am always curious to know the process!   I hope you will share something about Joe and Annie so I can share it with my readers in a Full Circle Post after you have received the postcard in the mail. 

People often sent greetings to relatives far away in the "olden" days.    Connie

I can add the info when ever it arrives. Thank you for stopping by.


  1. Wow... 5 full circles in such a sort time! *Does snoopy dance!"

    I hope we hear more about the Ustmo's!

  2. Looking forward to the story. Laurie, what the heck is taking so long for a follow up?

  3. I often wonder that myself: how do these photos end up where you find them? Yes, I know people used to send photos to their friends and relatives, but you know me...I want to know which relative sent it to whom. Some of these photos went a short distance, but some of them seem to have traveled half the continent.
