What Your Favorite Genealogist Wants From Santa...

Posted by Diane Hadad on the Genealogy Insider:

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:

Annual or monthly membership to Ancestry.com, Footnote, World Vital Records, Genealogy Bank or another subscription site

Family Tree Magazine tote bag (to take to the library), t-shirt or mug.

Membership in a local genealogical society (do a Google search or see Society Hill for contact information)

Registration for a genealogy workshop or conference (use Family Tree Magazine's online events calendar or contact a local genealogical society to find one)

Family Tree Magazine CDs: State Research Guides; 2005, 2006 or 2007 annual compilation; or International Genealogy Passport

Genealogy reference or how-to book such as the Family Tree Resource Book for Genealogists

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
