Have A Famous Ancestor?
Do you or your friends have an ancestor who was famous from 1900s-1930s (or perhaps even infamous)? Maybe your great grandfather, grandma, uncle, auntie was a movie star, soccer player, boxer, inventor, Victoria Cross medal winner or politician. If so, they might be featured on ephemera from that period, such as old postcards, cigarette cards, trading cards etc.
I've been collecting and trading in cigarette cards and vintage trading cards for 22 years. I've been recording the titles of about 101,000 cards that have passed through my hands over that time and many of them were celebrities from the early part of the 20th century. I've created an online card museum on eBay where I've listed a sample of just a few of the cards I've collected and traded in. This is a great resource if you are interested in genealogy. If you have any questions please feel free to ask me.
