Happy Genea-New Year 2018

As 2017 comes to a close, I want to wish all of my genea-buddies a happy and rewarding year of ancestor hunting in 2018!

Here I'm posting the front and back of a new year's card sent before 1915 to my husband's uncle, Wallis W. Wood (1905-1957), living in East Cleveland, Ohio. The sender was his first cousin in Toledo, Edith Eleanor Baker (1901-1989), daughter of Wallis's aunt, Ada Mary Ann Slatter Baker (1868-1947).

Happy genea-new year!


  1. Do card companies make New Year cards anymore? Happy New Year to you! Wishing you another year of successful research and blogging.

  2. Happy New Year! I look forward to your new blog posts.

  3. Happy New Year! That card is delightful. There were a couple years, when our children were small, when we sent New Year cards rather than Christmas cards. Just could not get cards out in time for Christmas. ha! May you 2018 be filled with family discoveries.

  4. What a pretty postcard and how great that it's one from your family archives. Happy New Year to you!
