#1 - Uniform from Norway 
Picture is from Norway.  Believed to be Ole Olsen Wagnild/Vagnild, b. 1832 in Soknedal. Is the uniform one that someone who worked for the King would have worn in the 1800s? Where would I look for information?  Maryellen   aacme@discover-net.net

Is it Støren? Soknedal?  It was on one of those postcard type pictures in my grandmother's album.  Does anyone recognize the family?  lschwartz1@telocity.com

This was taken near Rennebu, probably around 1912-14. The male teacher in the background is Foss. Ole Fossum is the lad on the end at the left, third row from the front. Can anyone identify the rest? Martin Fossum   martinf@imag.net

#4 - Uniform/Anders Lund from Vikna

What is the uniform in this photo of my grandfather, Anders Edward
Georgesen Lund  taken in Colorado Springs, Colorado in the late 191x's or the early 192x's. He left Vikna Norway around 1900 from Vikna parish, Nørd Trondelag. I have found no indication that he was in the military before he left. Notice the crown on the left sleeve and the coat of arms on the cross strap. The family adopted Lund as the family surname after arrival in Massachusetts in 1894. Kermit Roger (KR) Lund    krlund@garlic.com

#6 - Robert Roy Rogness
Robert Roy Rogness, born 02/15/1927, died 11/22/1963 - 3rd from the right in the picture.  I'm searching to find out who he really was. Background information is mixed on his parentage and nothing concrete has been found.   He married my Mother in 1957 in Iowa City Iowa. Does anyone recognize him?  Mary Stickney stickneys@ALLTEL.NET

#7 - Great-Grandmother Anderson
I have this picture and all it had written on it was Grandmother Anderson.  My great-great grandfather was Daniel Anderson, but his first wife died quite young and his two daughters were raised by ?.  So I don't know if this would be his new wife or his mother. Any help is appreciated.  Carol Goodroe  jcmmgood@home.com

#8 - Waynesburg, PA
My husband and I were on vacation about 2 years ago and visited an  "antique shop" in Walton, Iowa and I found this picture in a box of  many, many pictures.  I was just wonder who the little girls could  be and if they are still alive.  I only bought it because I use to have  alot of ancestors that lived in Waynesburg, Pa.  If anyone knows  who it could possibly be, would you please let me know?
