When I began looking at my records regarding Hildur I realized that
things weren’t right in my software, Family Tree Maker for Mac 2. I thought that I had the relationships
right. I had the relationship of my stepfather
set to step and his relationship to me as step, but his still showed up as my
father and Hildur as my grandmother. I finally figured out that under People,
Attach/Detach people that if I detached myself from him that he popped up as my
stepfather and all was well. I think the
process of establishing relationships in FTM4Mac2 is unintuitive and should be
streamlined. How half siblings and stepsiblings
are displayed are not clear and are difficult to get correct. I think that if
you put the correct relationship in the relationship tab that should be all
that should be necessary.

and cropping it to include only Hildur it is very blurry and poor quality. If anyone has a better photo of her I would
Bio – Hildur Christina Krafve
|Hildur Christina Krafve Mattson
The 1910 census finds the family in Maple Ridge Township in Isanti County, which is a few miles north of Cambridge. As an interesting side note, in 1917 a Reuben Krafve, son of Carl Krafve committed suicide in Maple Ridge Township when he received notice that he was drafted. I haven’t found the relationship to our Krafve’s yet, but I would think one is quite possible. I’ll need to look further into that.
I have been unable to find the Krafve’s in the 1920 census. I have found that their surname is spelled many different ways and have a lot more research to do to see if I can find them.
Hildur married Eddie Matson (aka Edward William Mattson) on 25 Mar 1922 in Hennepin County. A copy of certificate may be ordered from one of my favorite Minnesota websites: Minnesota Official Marriage System (MOMS).
