How to Start the Day Right: Coffee and Genealogy
Posted by Diane
The promise of hot coffee was about the only thing that made me drag
myself out of bed before dawn this morning, with three inches of
snow on the ground and more falling as I got ready for my first day
back at work after the holidays.
But I've been looking forward to showing you what my thoughtful
husband gave me for Christmas:
That's the 1860 census with the household of my
third-great-grandparents Edward and Elizabeth (Butler) Norris on the
coffee mug, and several photos and records from research on my
Haddad side on the mousepad.
To make them, Greg sneaked into my digital files and uploaded several
images to a photo-gift website. He even used the file name of the
census record to make sure the right family was displayed.
I hope you're starting the year with genealogy inspiration around
you. Happy New Year!
