Wordless Wednesday: Will You Be Mine?

Wordless Wednesday is a daily prompt at Geneabloggers that asks family historians to create a post in which the main focus is a photograph or image.

This Valentine is glued into a scrapbook belonging to my great-grandmother Mary Theresa Sheehan Killeen Walsh. Who the sender might have been will probably never be known, the name likely on the back glued fast to the brittle brown page. The card has a juvenile quality to it, so I like to think maybe the card was signed “Sonny” and sent by my father who adored his grandmother.

  1. A valentine from one's grandson would definitely be a keeper...forever! Vintage Valentines are a huge collectors item...I think they should be called Valentino's.

  2. That was so cute; you could definitely tell it was from a time a bit ago, but a very cute one :) I'm sure the recipient enjoyed it, whoever it was from!


  3. Very sweet. And also very important to her since she included it in her scrapbook.
