Carl Lynge & Anna Schjødt were married on December 23, 1904, in Hylke Church in Kattrup, Denmark. Carl was born in Slagelse, Anna in Horsens. Following the couple's engagement Anna stayed to work on the family farm for six years while her fiancé was employed in dairies in Russia. In late 1904 Carl returned home to marry Anna. They left by train for Tara, Siberia, where their oldest child, a daughter, Nadjescha, was born a year later. Her wedding photograph is featured elsewhere in this exhibit.
