Fält family photos, letters and documentation from Sweden

I was contacted by a distant cousin in Sweden. We exchanged notes and email messages and two days ago a packet arrived in the mail box from her. It was full of photos, letters and translations, family group sheets and other documentation connecting Johanna Fält with her parents and siblings. Below is a sampling of items from the packet. There are no words to describe the excitment at this windfall of information and a new relative to add to my Christmas card list. I can hardly believe my luck. All items from the collection of Marita Fäldt.

Gunhild Fält, sister of Johanna "Jennie" (Fält) Borgreen
