This weeks challenge is Memorial Cards.
I am fortunate to have three memorial cards and the original photographs which were used in these cards in my possession, each coming from my husband's family.
|Christina Jacobina Scheef nee Glock 1842-1912|
|Margaret Waters 1879-1905|
Shauna's post set her off in the direction of finding out how the little boy died. However, as I know the life stories of these three people I have decided to investigate the company which produced these cards.
Jacob Scheef's card (1904) was produced by The Memorial Card Co, 142 King Street, Sydney.
Margaret Water's card (1905) was produced by NSW Memorial Co, 542 Geo Street, Sydney.
Christina Scheef's card (1912) was produced by The Memorial Card Co, 142 King Street, Sydney.
Advertisements can be easily found on Trove in the Freeman's Journal, The Catholic Press, The Australian Town and Country Journal and country newspapers.
