I have over 200 memorial cards in that photo album. A treasure. I know that they were collected for a reason. Family members? Friends? Parishioners? Historical events? Most likely they are all of the above and I just need to figure out which ones are connected with my family. Regardless of which category they fall into, I'll eventually get each one posted.
There was some damage done by the magnetic album, but it didn't destroy any of the cards. It did ruin some of the beautiful artwork on the cards though. I love looking at the religious artwork on the cards. I love seeing the cards written in German and trying to see how much I can make out in that old script. And I love the cards with pictures of the departed on them.

Is it odd to like memorial cards? Perhaps no more than roaming cemeteries and courthouses. We genealogists are an odd bunch!
Enjoy tending those roots!
