Saturday Night Genealogy Fun (SNGF) - What did Genea-Santa Bring You?

It's Saturday Night - 
time for more Genealogy Fun! 

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.

 Come on, spill!  And it's OK to respond to this in the days after Saturday too!

My response:

I didn't get any genealogy-related gifts this year, just clothes and stuff.  But we got a priceless family history gift - a 2016 photo calendar with pictures of Tami's family each month as they grew up in 2015.  She gets them from Shutterfly and we now have about five years of them.  

This calendar will rekindle memories of 2015 with our daughter and grandchildren - the holidays, the birthdays, the overnight visits with us, the school shows, etc.

I received a copy of Evidence Explained from my son. He knows I've been wanting a copy for a while.

I received the book "Unofficial Guide to" and a bright pink flash drive. I bring brightly colored flash drives to libraries and archives. Have you ever asked a librarian if she has a box of lost one? There are zillions of black ones, but few neon pink.
