Postcard and Bible
collections of the
Logan County Genealogical & Historical Society
will be on display during Monday night’s 6:30
p.m. presentation by President Diane Osborn.
Although based on a large donation received from
the Shirley/Goode family of Hartsburg, the
program will also feature the Society’s entire
collections. The Shirley/Goode collection
includes a book of family tintypes, the 1873
Bible of Henry and Martha Shirley, genealogy
folders, and a sizeable postcard collection
dating from 1907.
Other Bibles on display
will be the 1872 Bible of F. M. and E. Hayes of
Lincoln and the 1857 Bible of David Birk and
who were married in Mt. Pulaski. Other
Postcards to be shown are an embossed Hartsburg,
IL card, a Greetings from Atlanta, IL card, and
the entire Lincoln, IL collection.
Duplicate cards and copies will be available for
sale or order.
