Ancestry has posted a collection of Germany Historical Postcards Collection, c. 1893-1963Â online. The database contains approximately 1,498 postcards dating from about 1893-1963 with photos of places in Germany. Information provided about each postcard includes:
- Place information (city/town, state/province)
- Postcard era (year range from which the postcard may be dated)
This database is primarily useful for obtaining a photograph or picture of a specific place in time. If you do not already have pictures of the places your ancestors lived, historical postcards are a good alternative to personal photos.
