Welcome to my genealogy blog. Ancestors I Wish I Knew is a combination of genealogical information and stories about individuals in my family tree. The focus is on those from my Cochrane, Eitelbach, Merrett, Minarcik and Richards lines and their descendants.

#76 Cochrane--Thank You Cousin Addie

The theme for this week is Thanksgiving.  Those who know me know that I have a collection of postcards.  Most of them are from places that my family or I have visited. Buying postcards before the advent of digital cameras was one way to insure that you had a image of the sights that you had seen. However, I also have holiday postcards and those are most special to me because they were sent to my father, when he was a little post.

I have several Thanksgiving cards;

This one is my favorite.  It was sent to my father in 1909 by his cousin, Addie Cochrane.  

I also have some other Thanksgiving cards.  I like this one because it combines the traditional colonial woman and boy with a turkey.

Turkeys seem to typify Thanksgiving.  Here is another card with a turkey featured on it.

I am grateful that my family kept these cards and that I am able to share them with you.
