Mr. E.D. Seeley is the lucky winner this weekend of the privilege of the attempt of being placed back into history. That's right. Researchers will be tirelessly researching the photo of the man with a long, long beard to uncover his family story in the 48 Hour Ephemera Challenge Forum this weekend.
The 48 Hour Ephemera Challenge is a forum that my 14yo daughter thought of and named. [She's brilliant, yes?] Then I created it in a forum format so that researchers can have a little weekend fun researching a piece of ephemera from my ever-growing private collection. [Lest ye judge, fun can be individually defined. And? I could've been collecting Beanie Babies. Remember that. ;) ] Eventually, the challenge will include other researchers' ephemera pieces.
The public forum is completely searchable by Google so that others can find the pieces and the info that has been found on them. Additionally, being public, the forum can be viewed by anyone. However, if you'd like to join in the search and post results, you must join for FREE.
Will you be joining us this weekend in the 48 Hour Ephemera Challenge Forum? All lurkers and voyeurs are welcome. All help will be very much welcomed and appreciated.
Will we be able to find out who Mr. E.D. Seeley was, what his story is, and where he belongs in history?
