My roots are in Lake Hanska, in Brown County, MN. I suspect that most or all of those pictured here lived in Brown or Watonwan counties, but may have roamed as far as North Dakota. I found their photos, unidentified, in a cardboard box left by a Lee family member. The main surnames in my family tree are Shellum, Lee, Nelson, Broste, Ellefson, Johnson, Brudelie, Bjorlie, Brude, Torgrimson, Haycraft, but there are hundreds of others as well.
In June, 2002, a kind reader and Lake Hanska native, Pam Nelson, identified photo 19 as the wedding picture of her grandfather and grandmother. This is the first of what I hope will be many identifications. Please help me put names on the rest of these faces.
