Todays “From the Vault Friday” features a passport from the Lunde Family fonds (Fonds 517). The passport belonged to Marie Jorgensen Lunde. Marie came to Sexsmith from Norway in 1927 with her brother and his wife and children, Ole and Kasbara Lunde. It is unclear what Marie did once arriving in the Peace Region. From her passport, we know she was born October 24, 1894 and had no children when she immigrated to Canada. Her brother and his family filed on a homestead in the La Glace area.

From the Vault Friday is a social media campaign that highlights interesting materials from the collections of the South Peace Regional Archives. This project was made possible by an Access to Holdings Grant from the Archives Society of Alberta.
