1911 envelope to Basel, Switzerland from Parks, Nebraska

I recently found a photograph of an old envelope that was sent by Mrs Carl ULLRICH to Basel, Switzerland from Parks, Nebraska in 1911. You can see the envelope on (search on ULLRICH, click on View, and scroll to the bottom of the page), or click on the link below. While I find a Carl ULLRICH in the 1910 US census in Blaine, Dundy County, I do not find a Mrs Carl ULLRICH and wondered if someone more familiar with the area can find her. I believe that Basel may be her or her parents' birthplace and this envelope may be helpful to someone in their genealogical research. The reason I have a photo of the envelope is because of my interest in using old envelopes and postcards in genealogical research. I have an article in the spring 2009 issue of New England Ancestors entitled Philatelic Genealogy (viewable at the philgen website) and have started the philgen website.

Here is a direct link to the photo of the envelope:
