I would expect that different families and different regions of the country might have different terms for it. I was still in early grade school when they stopped doing it (after their mother died).

I remember it used to be not just a letter, but they'd put in photos, article clippings, recipes, all kinds of things as well. Grandma would always save it until our next visit so we could see it.

Come to think of it, it was a lot like a pre-computer version of a family blog :D
