This is a copy of a postcard sent to me for genealogy purposes, and it is written from a cousin of my Grandmother in 1912. Could someone please translate for me as it is written, thank you so much.

Thank you, June. I was able to figure some of the words, but not all. This helps so much to identify the married name of his Mother (you wrote Back, but I am thinking maybe Bach?).....

The woman who sent it to me, will be very happy to know what it reads.

It could be Bach, but still looks like Back to me.. I have over 60,000 names in my database, but not one is named Bach... doesn't sound like a Swede-Finn name.. If it was Bäck it would sound like Beck.

Actually June, you are correct. It is Back and I was able to verify that, thanks again :)
