Great story! Such a fun find for the family - and fun also for the archives to have the mysterious name written inside a book be unexpectedly identified.

Aron Edstrom was my great grandfather. Was Mr. Edstrom's grandfather,John? I have a photo of John,his wife and their son Carl.And much more Edstrom family photos and information. It would be nice if we could share. Paul Scalcini Milw. Wi.

That's great, Paul! I'll send the information on to Phil so that he can contact you. Anne
