Children of Danish-born Folmer Nyby and his Danish-American wife, Vera, Andy, Kai and Osa Nyby were confirmed at Hope Lutheran Church in Portage, Indiana, in 1965, 1967 and 1968, respectively.
As cameras became common household possessions, informal family photographs would be taken as well as the more formal group photos. However, as can be seen from this photo taken when Kai was confirmed, getting the new confirmands to pose quietly sometimes was problematic. Kai later served as the President of The Danish Immigrant Museum board (now Museum of Danish America).
