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!


Genealogy fun

Oh, I love this! Any chance you'll share the name of the photo-gift website?

Hi, Miriam! Greg used Shutterfly, but I think Snapfish, Target and other sites also have these gift options (the mug is a tall one to fit a lot of coffee:). I have these sites liked on Facebook, so I usually wait for coupon codes and then make my gift.
