    1. [MN-FINLANDERS] BRANWALL FAMILY, Soudan, MN

    3. Hello, I have a 5x7 photo, probably taken about 1900, of 8 children dressed in their Sunday best. Writing on the frame states: BRANWALL FAMILY, Soudan, Minn. The girls, with their approximate ages are: Hilja (15); Saima (14); Esther (8); and Elsie or Signe (2 or 3). The boys are: Axel (14); Swante (15); Arne or Ernest (5); and an unknown little boy about 3 or 4. Penciled on the back of the cardboard frame is the name Hilma TAIPALE. She is my husband's grandmother, and it is almost certain that the BRANWALL's and the TAIPALE's are related. The TAIPALE's are from the Hibbing, MN area. I hope someone recognizes this family and would like this beautiful old photo. It is in excellent condition and we don't want to throw it away. Cheers, Sheila O'Connell Taipale [email protected]
