John Newmark over at Transylvanian Dutch has posted a very funny birth announcement which reminded me of the one my parents sent out for me:
I found this while I was cleaning out Mom's house over two years ago so I threw it in The Box. The during one of Miriam Midkiff Robbins' Scanfests, I scanned the announcement and filed it away with my other genealogy records.
I assume they also had one for girls which started with "I'm Lucky I'm A Girl . . ."
Gotta go. Someone in this household just commented, "Oh it isn't on papyrus? And they had moveable type back then?"
