Your mission, should you decide to accept it (cue the Mission Impossible! music) is to:
1) What gift that you received for Christmas is your favorite for genealogy purposes? Book, magazine, hardware, software, website subscription, research time, DNA test - what was it, and how will it affect your genealogy research?
2) Tell us about it in a blog post on your own blog, in a comment to this blog post, or in a comment on Facebook or Google+ in response to this post.
3) Come on, spill! And it's OK to respond to this in the days after Saturday too!
I gifted myself with the book The Stranger In My Genes by Bill Griffeth. I look forward to reading about his journey into finding his birth father using DNA.
We got two priceless family history gifts. The first is a 2017 photo calendar with pictures of Tami's family each month as they grew up in 2016. She gets them from Shutterfly and we now have about six years of them. This calendar will rekindle memories of 2016 with our daughter and grandchildren - the holidays, the birthdays, the overnight visits with us, the school shows, etc.
The second gift is the large photograph of all of our descendants as of December 2016 - I wrote about it in Our Best Christmas Gift for 2016 -- (Not So) Wordless Wednesday Post 445. It's on our entry way wall now, and I look at it every day and think "this is our legacy - they are beautiful."
