Postcards and Genealogy 
7:00 pm
First Lutheran Church, 1551 S 70th St., Lincoln
 
Joan Shurtliff did a session on a Sunday related to Post Cards that drew attention to an interest by many LLCGS members in not only collecting postcards of interest, but also seeking postcards related to locations and events in our family heritage. The education committee recommended bringing this program to a monthly meeting with some expanded features so that anyone could find a reason to attend and learn. Joan will present a brief general overview related to postcards and genealogy. Then we will have a time for folks to share their collections and explain why they have chosen the cards they have. We will also share ideas about internet sites to use when searching for postcards, compile a list of post cards people are seeking and facilitate options for sharing post card scenes.
 
Gather some of your samples of postcards you have or would like to have (remember postcards were not readily available until about 1906) and join us. If you know of a non member who is also fascinated with this topic, please invite them.
