Postcard Friendship Friday – Swinnerton Society Millennium Banner 2000

Not strictly a postcard, this card was sent to me by an acquaintance knowing of my genealogical interest. I don’t have any interest in this particular surname, but I do admire the skill of those researchers who designed and then embroidered the banner which was used for the Millennium celebrations in 2000.

    Quite an international embroidery, a nice idea for the millennium. Easy to track ones ancestors with an unusual name like that.
