We recently had the pleasure of meeting another individual, one Tom Long from Maitland, Florida who has traced his great grandfather's family back to the early 1900's when they were active members in the village of Holdingford. He has researched the "Advertiser" newspaper for information on his ancestors.
Enjoy reading the following narrative of the lives and times of the great-grandparents of Tom Long, Henry and Katherine Sandkamp, and their family as reported by the Holdingford, Minnesota weekly “Advertiser” newspaper from 1908 to 1921.
