This Rosh Hashanah card comes from one of our family collections. Belonging to Helene Susanne Marcus, it was sent 5 October 1929. Originally from Kassel in Germany, the Marcus family were not particularly religious yet the Nazi boycott of Jewish businesses made it increasingly difficult for her father to earn a living. Susanne was sent to England in 1937, aged 15 and was joined by her parents before the outbreak of the Second World War.

I've been given a small case of old family papers. Can't wait to take a look through them properly this weekend. .

Written today 72 years ago to my Grandmother from her brother Bill who was stationed "somewhere in France" during World War 2. <3 "Dear Sis,
Received your letter today and was very glad to hear from you. Try to write often Hazel and I'll try to do the same. I also received the Valentines greeting. Thanks for remembering. Glad to hear you are back at work. I hope you are in the best of health now. The New England states had  a pretty hard winter this year- didn't they? Do you hear from your boyfriend very often? I was also surprised to hear about Adele being engaged. The "kids" sure have grown up fast. I probably won't know them when I do get to see them. It's been a long time since I've been home hasn't it? After the war is over my honey and I are going to take a trip to Conn. to visit you all. That will be another great day in my life. Mildred is a darling wife Hazel, I hope you get the chance to meet her soon. Another month to go and I'll be a papa. I sure do like the idea. Bye now-- Bill. "

#familypapers going through old family papers. These belonged to a fascinating gentlemen. Started off as a #lightdragoon became a colonel in the #7thhussars Retired sensibly early before #Waterloo and sketched and painted. Oddly enough the Met and the Scottish National Gallery have a few. A good friend of #walterscott @delhispearman could probably better identify the asiatic cossack at bottom left #soldierartist #warartist #sketches #penandink
It's time for #ColorOurCollection

It's always interesting to work using old family letters and documents. This letter was part of a family collection from the 1790s which fortunately, had been stored safely and remains in good condition. It provided a unique insight into a client's family history. © Devon Family History Research 2017. All rights reserved.

Day 25 of the November #genealogyphotoaday challenge: worn. Pictured here is a "reasonable facsimile" of the formal #dress #worn by my mother to a springtime dance during her college years. Mom drew the picture in a letter she wrote home to her parents, and she said the dress looked just "like a pink cloud." It was pink chiffon with a real full skirt and all tucked and shirred on top. She also described it as "slishy," which I guess meant snazzy and gorgeous back then! #formalattire #familyhistory #1950s #ancestry #letters #Nierstefamily #familypapers @genealogyphoto

It's wonderful to come across an unexpected find like this - one of several watercolours discovered amongst a batch of family history papers. It was a family with a strong naval tradition, and this watercolour was painted by a young naval officer who went on to become an admiral.

This tintype of a #spaniel named Major came in today as part of a donation of family papers of the Barber clan. The family was from Maine and northern Massachusetts. #dogs #familydog #familypapers #photography_aas
Found this little gem in some family papers! Experiencing nerd joy in the extreme. #familypapers #genealogy #democrats
