Program:  Post Office Records, Geography, Politics, Religion and more
Most post office talks focus on the U.S. Post Office as employers. But post offices aren't just about employees or even the mail. Post offices defined comunities, and people used their existence to locate themselves. Records also document magazine and newspaper subscriptions received, often organized by customers! We can gain a personal perspective on our ancestors while learning the reading habits of the larger community. Priceless!
