The seller did not say what was actually written on the back of the card,
unfortunately. Nor did he show the reverse, just the photo on the front. If
I am the winning bidder, I will give the card to the person who,
genealogically, is not connected to it, which, so far, would be you. I
will, however, scan and keep the image and message for my own collection. I
am eager to see the card reunited witb its rightful owners.
By the way, my bid is fairly low and if I know that the other bidder is NOT
buying it for genealogical purposaes, I'll try to retain highest bid. If,
OTYOH, the other person IS a family member, I'll let it go. We'll see what
For those of you who are interested in finding LOADS of pictures of your
ancestors' home towns, I find that searching on that town's name on Ebay
frequently produces a wealth of postcard images! I now have a thick
notebook of pictures from Monett around the 1890s to the 1930s! Visit ebay
frequently and search on your surnames and on town names and you'll be
astounded at what you find! Other topics to search on include the phrase
"Family Bible" "Daguerreotype" "Tintype" "Genealogy" and the words
together, but not a phrase "Handwritten" "journal" "diary" "papers" (mix
and match terms and see what comes up). Check back each week and you'll be
delighted! A lot of times such items go for fairly low bids because they
are so specific that collectors aren't really intersted. Just the search
term "handwritten" grabs a wealth of interesting stuff!
And yes, whenever I find a good Barry county item on ebay, I'll write it up
