Of all the wonderful genealogy posts I had a chance to read this week, the one that touched me the most was A Hoyt Genealogy’s lovely Sentimental Sunday story about her discovery of an 1918 postcard sent from a French WWI soldier named Edmond to his beloved Jeanne. It’s a touching story that is beautifully written. A lovely reminder that while genealogy is built upon a framework of names and dates, its beauty lies in the telling of the stories.
Cicero wrote, “the life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living.” Thank you MarDi for recognizing the magic of that old postcard and keeping Edmond and Jeanne’s memory alive!
