A very Merry Christmas to all.
Get your yule log set afire and have your family get around it for this Christmas eve.
Another old Christmas postcard to keep you in the holiday spirit. This one is dated 1910.
I hope you have this whole week off from work to celebrate with Christmas with your family.
I hope you have all your Christmas presents bought and wrapped. Christmas is just around the corner.
Back in May, NY State created a web database that had an index to update deaths from 1957 to 1963. That database has now found its way to FamilySearch. The FamilySeaxh version is easier to use. As earch gives gives spelling variations and also gives the place of residence that you had to hunt for on the NY site.
I suspect that the reason that the index only goes back to 1957 is that is when NY State Department of Health got their first computer. New records have been added quarterly as NY has a 50 year restriction on the death index.
Check out the FS version of the NY death index via this direct link.
The colors are kind of strange on this Christmas postcard but I think I like it anyway. It is dated 1910.

A simple Christmas postcard from about 1915.
Another old Christmas postcard. This has some religious sentiments to remember the original meaning of the day.
This postcard dates from about 1915. The spelling of Xmas for Christmas has come under attack in the last few years. I found that in many old church records an “X” is used as abbreviation for Christ.
