Gilma & Myrtle Torkelson, ch. Of Osmund & Bessie Torkelson of Winnebago Co., IA

I have an original postcard photograph of “Gilma and Myrtle Torkelson”, which I would like to get back to family members. Photo was taken in about 1940-45 in Albert Lea, MN, which is in Freeborn Co. They look to be in their teens, possibly 15 & 18.

I found Gilma and Myrtle in the 1930 census for Linden (Winnebago Co.) IA, daughters of Osmund J. and Bessie O. Torkelson. Myrtle J. was age 5 and Gilma A. was age 2. The photo is a closeup of the girls.

Email me at if you are related to Gilma or Myrtle Torkelson.
