Engelman Family Genealogy Forum
I have a very nice old 32" panoramic photo of 42 people standing in an orchard which was taken on March 22nd 1918. It's labelled "J.G. Engelman Excursion Party - Rio Grande Valley." The photographer is "Eskildsen" - McAllen, Texas. The picture is very sharp and the faces are clear and theoretically identifiable.
I believe one of the men in the picture is Ole Borgen from Glenwood City, WI, as his name is written in pencil on the reverse. The grandson of Ole Borgen believes that the people in the picture may be members of a national Norwegian-American group called "Osterdalslaget."
I'm a member of a current-day organizational off-shoot of Osterdalslaget called "Nord Hedmark og Hedemarken Lag" and I'm looking for further help in identifying this photo and the individuals in it.
Please speak up if you can help!
