Confirmation Class 1901 - Photo
It's not likely the Finnestad family had a camera or the ability to have professional photos taken, so photos of the Finnestad family in the early days probably do not exist.
Fortunately, Calvary Lutheran Church located at 19 Perry Road and County Line Road in Lee County, Illinois had kept records from the late 1800's to the present.
Above is a photo of Ole Sr and Mari's granddaughter, "Dina" Josephine Finnestad and her confirmation class in 1901. Dina is wearing a ribbon in her hair, middle row, 3rd from the right.
