The following postcards were emailed to me from Vancouver,
Canada, with the following explanation:
I've attached 4 scanned post cards of Gainsborough
from the turn of the 19th century. These four post cards come from
my Great-Great Grandmother's collection which includes over 100
post cards from within and outside Lincolnshire. Her collection
spanned approximately 15 years. My Great-Great Grandmother (Elizabeth
Sellars ne Parker) was born and raised in Coningsby in 1838. I learned
a lot about Lincolnshire especially about Coningsby, Tattershall
and Boston from my Grandad (Aubrey Osgarby) who was born and raised
in Coningsby in 1905 but later moved to Canada. I've been fortunate
to have visited Lincolnshire a couple of times and I certainly feel
it is a very beautiful part of England. I'm currently reviewing
the post card collection trying to transcribe the messages on the
post cards and I hope to determine the sender of the post cards.
It's an exciting way to learn about the family tree and local events
I am putting thumbnails of these postcards on this
