Looking for pictures

I would love to find a picture of Louis and Ragnhild Blomquist, my great-grandparents.  That may be too far back, though.  I would even love to have a picture of their graves in the Saron Cemetery.Maybe one of these days I will come to Hallock and see where my great-grandparents lived and worked and where my grandfather grew up. I love working on our family history but have been on again--off again.  I have been working on my father's side of the family from Burgstadt, Germany, but I want to…See More

Looking for family

My grandfather was Eddie Norman Blomquist, and my great-grandparents were Louis A. and Ragnhild Olson Blomquist from Hallock.  Louis and Ragnhild are buried in the Saron Cemetery.  I am wondering if I have any family in the area.  I never knew my grandfather and only found out about my great-grandparents from Melton and Adeline Blomquist about 2001.  Then I lost touch with them.I would love to get in touch with family members!See More

How did you learn about us?
My grandfather, Eddie Norman Blomquist, was from Hallock. I received information about the family back in 2001 from Melton and Adeline Blomquist, but I lost touch with them. Recently I have gotten back into looking for my "roots," and I found you by Googling.
