Vintage Holiday Postcards

Posted December 21, 2017 by Amanda | No Comment

Do you have any vintage holiday cards? It’s an old practice to send holiday cards to friends and loved ones during the holidays. They are also a great find for genealogists.

Old postcards can often provide some important clues for your family history and can provide an intimate connection with your family’s past. They may even provide you with a new name or give you a clue as to how someone is related.

With the holidays only a few days away, here’s a look at some lovely holiday postcards from the early 20th century:
