I thought maybe if you didn’t I would be in.  But if you are a week wont make any difference to me. Will look for a card Friday.  Mae [Mariam Mae Wright].    Mother [Marietta Lee Wright, Effie’s sister] and I are ready to go to the Gleaners”

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.
