Prayer Cards, also known as Funeral Cards and Memorial Cards, usually contain the birth and death dates and sometimes contain a picture, maiden name, children's names, and brother's and sister's names.
Our collection also contains Funeral Notices. These notices were typically distributed to area businesses.
The majority of the cards in this collection were submitted by John Ratermann. An enormous thanks goes to him. We also had donations from Frank Klostermann and many others.
