Halloween Postcards

Posted October 25, 2014 by Amanda | No Comment

Do you have old postcards in your collection of family history mementos? Before email and texts, postcards were a perfect way to send short messages to family and friends. Because of this, postcards often hold wonderful anecdotes of family memories written in the hand of your relative. Whether your relative was traveling or just sending well wishes during the holidays, postcards bring us an intimate connection with your family’s past.

With Halloween season upon us, check out these fun Halloween themed postcards from history!
