How this will work

Recommended Posts

We are trying to sort through the mant postcards that we currently have on hand.  There is a wide variety of used and unused cards so we are trying to figure out the best way to present them on the site.


We believe that even though some of our cards have never been used, they are still fascinating to look at.  Due to this, we will be taking digital images of those cards and placing them into our site galleries.


For the postcards that have been previously used and mailed to someone, we are going to attempt a transcription of the card and to provide other meaningful data as we are able. Since the primary information on the card is the Adressee, we will title each DB entry using the name of the ADDRESSEE:

  • Last name, First name.
  • Adress mailed to
  • Date and location of cancellation on card


We will also include a digital image of the written portion of the card so others can check our transcription for accuracy.  Lastly, the postcard entries will leave a forum comment area so others can comment or provide feedback. We hope we can find some homes for the momentos and family notes.

      Major presentation changes


      Major changes are now becoming available through the software we are using.  I am hoping for some more gallery changes and flexibility with our pages construct, but time will tell.   Hope you are all enjoying summer!

      The Spring Slowdown


      I think it is a common theme really.  Each year as spring opens and the weather allows a release to the outdoors, the website will see a slowing in information.  That is ok, we really love our gardens as well.  I am also a huge fan of grilling foods.  I am not sure any of that will change in years to come either.   We have also taken a grand step in our field research and spent a week primarily in New Jersey with a few stops in Pennsylvania. It was a grand discovery, and yet, it was overwhelming as well. I have yet to go through all of the information that we uncovered.  And again, we found more holes that need attention.  I jokingly tell my bride that I am "DONE" now that I have linked my American lineage to the initial immigrant from Germany.  It is just a joke, there is always more to do. Thankfully so!   In the coming weeks things will settle and we will once again make some time to get more of our information on line.  Expect a wealth of data surrounding the early Tinsmans in America, maybe in Germany as well.  I will see what I can do.  I will also get more linked information posted for other areas.  Finding so many local resources while we traveled has proven that courthouses and societies are very important places to visit, and even make new friends.   I hope you will find something worth your visit, maybe even something Grand!!!!!
