Christmas Greetings

A Happy Christmas and New Year to all my Blog readers. 
Thank you for contributing to this engrossing new hobby I discovered this year.  

The postcard above, sent in 1877,  was in the family collection of a distant cousin.  The verse reflects  Victorian maudlin sentiment of the time,  but it is still a lovely picture.

My great grandfather was James Danson of Poulton-le-Fyle, Lancashire.  His eldest brother was John Danson  and I made contact with John's great great granddaughter Janet through the Genes Reunited website. I am not too sure what relation that makes us, as I get rather mixed up between cousins four times removed and fourth cousins etc.  I was delighted to discover a new relation and we exchanged family papers and memorabilia.
