Alvild Georg Hansen, the second of four children of Niels Frederick and Elise Hansen, was born 12 July 1898 in Copenhagen, Denmark. He had a sister Esther, who died in 1920 at the age of 10, and two brothers, Niels Sigfried and Henry.

Two months after his cousin John George Hansen returned to Denmark for a visit, Alvild Georg, 23, and John's brother, Martinus Georg, 21, left Copenhagen for Boston aboard the "SS United States"—final destination Waterloo, Iowa, home of John George. The cousins arrived in February 1921 and settled in Iowa. Sometime before 1927, Alvild left to take a job in Hartford, Connecticut.

Alvild married Valborg, surname unknown, in December 1930. She was born in May 1906, probably in Sweden, and came to the US about 1928. Alvild and Valborg were both naturalized in the Detroit District Court, he in October 1932 and she in April 1939.

When their only daughter was born in Detroit in 1933, they named her Esther after Alvild's little sister.

It appears that Esther may have lived at home for her entire life and never married—she still had her maiden name of Hansen at the time of her death in May 2001 in Royal Oak, Michigan.

Alvild had a good job with the US Rubber Company where he worked for many years. Sometime before 1945, they bought a house in Royal Oak, Ferndale, Michigan where they were still living when Alvild died in December 1980. Valborg may have lived past her 85th birthday in 1991 but no records have been found to confirm her death.
