Saturday Night Genealogy Fun- What are you thankful for?

Hey Genea-Musings readers, it's Saturday Night (again) -- time for more Genealogy Fun (again!).

Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to:

1)  Make a list of Genealogy-oriented people or things that you are thankful for.  Any number -- 1, 10, 100, whatever.

2)  Tell us about it in your own blog post, in a comment on this post, or in a Facebook comment or Note.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Here's mine:

1.  I am really thankful for my genealogy friends - Genea-Musings readers, genea-bloggers, Facebook Friends, Twitter Followers, society colleagues, authors and editors of magazines and books, etc.

2.  I am really thankful for the efforts of,,,, and other free or commercial websites that obtain, image and index genealogy records.

3.  I am really thankful for the opportunity to do genealogy research and writing for 8 to 12 hours a day - is this a great country, or what?  A special mention for my Angel Linda who lets me work in the Genealogy Cave for hours on end. 

I could list many more, but I won't do it now.

This year, genealogically, I am thankful for:

A wife who tolerates my passion because I also research her family
Robert Harper’s will – broke through a brick wall
Newfound cousins – David G Smith & Carl Cochrane
1824 Vermont Journal Newspaper – 3 line obituary – opened a seemingly endless line of ancestors
Sandrine Braun – superb lookup volunteer in southern France
All the volunteers who are part of Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness
All of the new friends and acquaintances I have made during the process of my research

I am most thankful for a husband, although not a big genealogy fan, lets me do my research and pays for my subscription every year and no complaints. I am thankful for all the new friends I have made. Also, for the opportunities to lecture and write for various Societies and publications. I am also thankful for those clients, both paying and nonpaying, that gives me challenges in discovering their ancestry.

I'm thankful for the familysearch beta. No more $15 a pop and waiting for five months to get a record out of Cook County.
