Email received at LSCGG on 12 DEC 2012 stated:
Not too long ago my wife and I donated a volume of our book about immigration from Sand to your library:
Come Join Me in the Spring! Immigration to America from the Helland Farm Community in Sand, Rogaland, Norway, 1861-1912. ISBN 978-82-303-1941-3. 330 pages, 285 pictures, 16 maps
In this book on page 217 there are two photos that are not identified, from the studio of Wilson & Gerding. The photos were found at my family's farm in Norway when it was abandoned. Is it possible to have them published in your Mystery Photo Collection? If so I will send them online. Most likely surnames Eide, Helland or Thompson. [color emphasis added by webmanager]
Thank you very much.
