I have been fortunate to come across several postcard collections of my ancestors. I have scanned both the front and back of the cards as part of preservation and an easy way to study them. The following is an example of fields used in cataloging the post cards.
- Post Mark:
- Approximate dating of post cards with no date is present
- The family history value of the post card
- Where to search for your ancestors’ writings
- Use and record what you learn
