In July of 1999, I donated to the Republic County Museum (Hiway 36) in Belleville, Kansas, a Family Tree Crocheted by Anna Albertina Broden Englund (1873-1925) from the hair of each of her children.  This was done, we believe, circa 1910 to 1915 as the last two children (Anna Caroline Englund, my mother, and Donald Broden Englund) was born in 1907 and 1911, respectively.

It is my understanding that this form of art can be found in Victorian times and was quie often found in Scandanavian and/or European families.

Below are pictures of the Englund family and the Family Tree.
