Look at that - the wedding announcement for my paternal grandparents, Mildred Loraine Gunzendorfer and Sigmund Levy! I found this little gem folded in the original envelope and just ready for mailing, even if it is nearly 100 years later.
My grandmother apparently hated the name Mildred and always used her middle name - looks like she hated it enough to leave it off of her wedding announcement.
The engagement wasn't a long one as I found the newspaper article announcing their engagement in the San Francisco Chronicle, November 10, 1918. In my treasures I've also found many, many letters of congratulations from their various friends.
I don't know the exact dates of these photos but they seem to be from about the right time period.
I also found some newspaper articles tossed in with the pile of photos I have. I have no idea of the dates or the newpaper(s) they were printed in but here's a sample of one of them.
It's so fun to find these treasures - it takes me back to another time and makes the stories of my ancestors so real.
Congratulations Sig and Loraine!
