I wonder if sister Ruth on the census is the Ruth Jeffrey in the family photo on page 65 of the book?  Just a guess...

Good guess RK  :)

Hello Linus,
Johan Peter Byggdin is my grandfather (Wallace was my dad). Just saw your posts this morning as Iíve just recently been doing some searching of my family history too. I see you have received some info, but I can certainly provide more, if youíre interested. Lucille, Johnís only daughter, is still alive (98 this year). Merle, the youngest son, died about 30 years ago. As for me, Iíve been living in St. Johnís, Newfoundland since 1996 (married in Ď07). Also, I have a cousin, Lorraine, who has done extensive work on our family tree. My grandfatherís trip to Sweden in the 60s is still fondly remembered by his clan!
Best regards
Shelley Di-Nur

Hello! That's amazing. I have a post card from, Wallace and Beth. They sent it to my mother and father back in 1982.
