What Your Favorite Genealogist Really Wants From Santa
Posted by Diane

Funny how a weekend that seemed endless when I woke up that first free day passed by so quickly. But it was nice and full: celebrating with friends and family, walking the dog (I was at home during daylight hours!) and finishing 85 percent of my Christmas shopping.

With the onset of holiday shopping season, may we suggest these gifts for the family historian in your life:
  • Membership in a local genealogical society (do a Google search or see Society Hill for contact information)
  • Gift certificate to a Web site such as Snapfish or Shutterfly, where your favorite genealogist can turn old photos into photo books, collages, picture mugs, notecards and more
  • a chauffered trip to a research repository or genealogy workshop, maybe with lunch (your treat)
  • a day at a history museum
What’s on your genealogy wish list this year? Click Comments (below) to tell us (then slip your significant other the link to this post!).

For readers in Family Tree Magazine’s hometown of Cincinnati, our company is holding a warehouse sale that includes how-to books on sewing, writing, woodworking, painting and tons of other hobbies—including, yes, genealogy. Click here for the location and directions.

No matter where you live, you can check out this bargain book selection online at ClearanceBooks.com.

Don't you want a MagicJack?
Dick Eastman, "technology expert" recommends it.

Oops, he deleted his glowing recommendation.

I treated myself to early presents from the Genealogy Gifts store (http://www.cafepress.com/jmkbooks). Got a nice T-shirt, mouse pad, and notebook.

There's one thing I'd like that I probably won't get (unless someone in my family or I win the lottery). I'd like to get a laptop to be able to take my genealogy research with me to the library and other places (like my room upstairs). Genealogy/family history is the only thing I'd put on the laptop. Even one of those little book-size computers that are selling at Target, the ones that are strictly for the internet or you can get one with XP, those are nice and they are all ready to surf.

Of course knocking down all my brick walls would be nice too. :-)

A gift that would be unbelievable is paid month expenses in Salt Lake City so I could bury myself in the Family Research Center. I mean if this is going to be a desired Christmas gift -- that is one that just would be unbelievable. All of the suggestions on your site are excellent. But a full month of research there would be so unbelievably wonderful!!!!

Given that I won't get that -- renewal of my ancestry.com site would be first choice or just cover purchase of more research books/CDs/magazines, etc.
