New York in Postcards

Join us on July 9 at 7 pm with Michael Cassara for New York in Postcards: Bringing Deltiology to your Genealogy! To genealogists with an affinity for New York research, postcards can be an overlooked and occasionally invaluable means of peering further into the lives of our ancestors. Both the front and back of postcards can be an invaluable means of peering further into the lives of our ancestors. The front of the cards can offer illustrations of long demolished places of interest. Messages on the back may shed light on an ancestor’s travels and interactions, giving the researcher a clearer sense of long-forgotten happenings.

This program will be presented virtually via Zoom. To register, visit the Manhasset Library website. The email entered at registration will be used to send the access information the day before or the morning of the program. If you do not receive the access information, please send an email to [email protected] to have it resent. This program is courtesy of the Genealogy Collective and is sponsored by Oyster Bay – East Norwich Public Library. The Genealogy Collective comprises six North Shore libraries: Bayville, Glen Cove, Gold Coast, Locust Valley, Manhasset, and Oyster Bay. Together, we offer monthly programs on a variety of topics ranging from genetic DNA testing to the study of gravestones to adoption and forensics genealogy. For more information, contact Lydia Wen at [email protected] or (516) 676-2130 ext. 132.
