They moved off the farm in 1984 and bought a house in Viborg. Included in the collection are detailed Farm Record Books dating from 1943 to 1991. The Farm Record Books offer detailed accounts of all expenses and income for the Jorgensen Farm. Also included are account books of egg production from 1943-1949 and 1960-1972, kept by Helen Jorgensen. There is also a five-year diary kept by Mae Olesen Hanson from 1949-1953.
