Genea-bloggers Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories

Thomas MacEntee prepared this press release:


Capture Your Family’s Memories of Christmas 24 Ways in 24 Days

November 1, 2010 – Chicago, IL. GeneaBloggers – the genealogy community’s resource for blogging – announces the return of the Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories beginning December 1, 2010.

What started as a bi-annual event December 2007 as a way for genealogy bloggers to capture and document the memories of family holiday traditions has now grown into an annual event with its own blog. Visit the Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories at and learn how you can participate in this unique online genealogy event.

Beginning December 1, 2010, each day will present a specific blogging prompt such as Christmas Cookies and bloggers will be asked to write about their memories related to the theme and their family history. A new prompt will appear each day through December 24, 2010.

Bloggers who have participated in the past can join in the fun again by either repeating their posts from previous years or creating new posts. Besides creating an on-line journal of Christmas memories, some bloggers have even gone on to create books of their previous Advent Calendar posts to share with family and friends.

Don’t’ forget to check out the list of blogging prompts and get started on capturing your childhood Christmas memories today!

Follow the Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories on Facebook (,  Twitter (  and on our blog at

I encourage all genea-bloggers to participate in this Advent Calendar, for no other reason than writing to these prompts may provide more information to your family members, and that may prompt their own memories to share with the family.
