Comments to a picture of "The Borberg Brothers"
4 of these men are brothers of Niels Christian Nielsen, Harold's grandfather. These 4 were living in the USA, in Chicago, Illinois on our 1930 US census. They were living together at one address as roomers & working as icemen. Kristen Hansen age 38, George William age 37, Jens Christian age 30 & Karl Vigo age 29. I've given their ages as they gave them on this 1930 census. They all used the surname, Borberg.
