Hi!
My name is Göran Blomqvist and I am running this website - FamilyPix - aiming at reaching the different family branches in our vast ancestor-tree so that we can share knowledge of our common history. Another important aim is to facilitate the possibility to share, and help identify the historical family photos hidden in drawers and boxes in our homes all around the world, hence the site is also in english.

This is a non-commersial site, runned by me (with some technical help from my brother). The driving-force behind it is pure curiosity and joy of finding new knowledge on "old" issues.

The Blomberg school house in Ytter Ekeby, Fellingsbro
January 4th, 2012

More familypictures from the Blomberg school house found.

When looking through old photo albums and boxed pictures that have belonged to Nelly Viderud and Milda Viberg, the daughters of Knut Wiberg hand his wife Jenny (born Blomberg, daughter of school teacher Karl Magnus Blombergs), another two pictures of the old school house in Ytter Ekeby, Fellingsbro, was found. Earlier we have seen a picture of Karl Magnus and his second wife Anna, sitting on the porch of the school house (top picture). That picture belongs to the descendants of Hilma Tjäder, the oldest daughter of Karl Magnus. It must be from 1901 or earlier, since Anna died in January 1902.

The older of the two found pictures seems to be from mid 1910's since it was found together with other pictures from that period.

The younger of the two found picture seems to be from a journey that Milda and Nelly made in Fellingsbro sometime in the 1930's. Together with the sisters in front of the school house are two younger girls, that I very much would like to have identified.

Den last picture is taken by me at a visit in Fellingsbro together with my parents in July 2003.
