1911 – Detroit Yacht Club


To: Mrs. Effie Weaver.  Aug 8. 1911.  “Wishing you a very happy Birthday and may you have a great many more. Suppose you are having a dandy time. Wish I were with you.  When are you coming out?  All are well.  Estelle.”

Detroit Yacht Club,Belle Isle — This handsome home of the club was built in 1905 to replace their former home, destroyed by fire. It cost $20,000.  The club is one of the largest on the great lakes, features sailing and maintains a fleet of 20 one-design cat-boats in which members sail weekly regattas.

Genealogist / Family Historian; Blog started as a record of my Grandfather's post card collection which ran for 15 months. Then, in June, 2017, I changed over to reporting and commenting on notifications from the ANCESTRY app "We're Related" I then started to provide snippets into ancestor biographies on the dates that were significant anniversaries.
