Sepia Saturday provides an opportunity for genealogy bloggers to share their family history through photographs.
|Arthur Harry Iverson|
My paternal grandmother, Ingrid Anna Gilberg, Arthur’s wife, also came from a musical family. Her vocal personal history recounts how her mother, an immigrant from Sweden, played the guitar and sang. In this history Ingrid said,
“Another thing I’d like to tell you that mother played the guitar as a young girl in Sweden and she would play at gatherings with her friends and they would harmonize and sing all the songs they knew in Sweden. When she came to America she continued this. She played the guitar at home and with friends and she taught us Swedish songs. And we learned to harmonize my sisters and I. It was a beautiful gathering each time we would stand around our mother and she would play the guitar and sing Swedish songs.”Ingrid’s twin sisters, Edith and Ida were called upon many times to sing solos in church.
