Petals falling photo  DL Ant

The poor bride is losing the petals from her bouquet…it looks like the flowers were peonies.

Petals falling photo back and a name   DL Ant

This photo was sent to a Mr Christ Berghly.

Often times photos were sent with traveling relatives or tucked into a package.

This is a Cyko Postcard which was used from 1904 to the 1920’s. This one looks to be from the 1920’s.

Thanks for stopping by.

    1. Christian B Berghly born Jan 26 1891 and died May 16 1981, buried in Sunset Gardens Fargo ND He was in the Army in WWI

  2. Kristian Bernhard Johans. Bergly, born January 26 1891, living in Østre Aker, Oslo, Norway, left Oslo for North Dakota May 1 1912 on the ship Eskimo. He was then working as a "helper" in a workshop. Source: http://digitalarkivet.arkivverket.no/gen/vis/8/pe00000001127273

    If I search for other Kristian (or Christian) born on the same date, I find only three, and one of these, Kristian Johannesen, was born in Aker, Oslo (source: 1910 referendum, http://digitalarkivet.arkivverket.no/ft/person/pf01036372027347). He lives in a house (Bellevue) with his (?) family and two other families. If the assumption that one of these families are his, then his parents were born in Sweden.
