The Blogging from A to Z Challenge is to post everyday (except Sunday) in the month of April 2016 starting with the letter A and going all the way to Z. The theme I chose is Genealogy Tips. At the end I will give a related post from my blog Genealogy: Beyond the BMD.
S is for Souvenir Books (and Pamphlets)
In the late 1800's to mid 1900's souvenir books were printed for cities and villages, associations, jubilees and centennials, government officials, religious conferences, grand openings and unveilings, manufacturers, sporting events...
There were souvenirs published also to commemorate floods, fires and earthquakes!
... and in times of war.
If you are looking for old photographs of places or events and perhaps your ancestors or people they knew, these are great resources for finding them.
