A Merry Christmas to You


A Merry Christmas to You.  Printed in Germany [Glossy Picture].

No post mark [not mailed].  Addressed to Mrs. Effie L [Lee] Weaver, Detroit, Michigan.

“Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year is the wish of Sister Christeen [Christiana Weaver Rhinehart].”

This card probably predates Aunt Teen’s marriage to Uncle Charlie Shwartz since it was printed in Germany and the postage requirement states:  Domestic, Cuba, Canal Zone, Hawaii, Mexico, Philippines, Puerto Rico  One Cent, Foreign Two Cents.  Aunt Teen was Great Grandfather Lemuel Weaver’s sister and Great Grandmother Effie Lee Weaver’s sister-in-law.

In the collection it is quite unusual since the picture is glossy.   All of the others are matte.



About Pat Shaul

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.
