Hi Sarah:

Have you looked through this site, there are some brief biographies plus photos in the multimedia section (which is a pain to search unfortunately):

And if you search the Glenbow Museum's photographs you will find old pictures of Barons and maybe some of your branch of the family:

Barbara Gullickson wrote a genealogy book called 'Juri's Children' that is full of pictures and stories (Juri Erdman was one of the ancestors who walked from Estonia to the Crimea then his and Madli's grandchildren came to Canada around 1903):

But I think your family was part of the second wave of Estonian immigrants so I'm not sure how many of them are in it because I don't have a copy here. If you want, you can write me directly and I'll pass along any questions to Auntie Barbara, she knows a lot about the family.

All the best,
