Through ancestry messaging, I have received an offer  of an old photo album that contains photos of these families:   LIEN/LEIN, HANSON, HARRISON, MADDEN, ALEXANDER, BRAZELL, and LEMMON.  Family members include: Jim HANSON and his wife Marit LIEN, Mary, LIEN HARRISON and Carrie LIEN MADDEN, Henry Alfred LIEN Elmer ALEXANDER Marion LIEN and Lena BRAZELL Theodore Miles LEMMON Ruby Elizabeth ALEXANDER Marie LIEN HARRISON Ole and Pernilla LIEN and family Marion LIEN plus almost 20 unidentified photographs.The names Ruby Elizabeth Alexander  and Leroy Alexander  are in my tree but I don't recognize any of the other names.

Can anybody claim these people as family members?  Would you like to be put into contact with the person who offered the album to me?  Ruby Elizabeth and Leroy do not appear to have profiles on wikitree.  Ruby may be my third cousin once removed.  I don't wish  to claim the album based on a 1 person connection.

Jim Hanson and Marit Lien certainly sound like Norwegians. Lien is a common Norwegian farm name. There are probably hundreds of them all over the country, so it's not of much use for identification. The patronym Hanson is even more common.
