Got a genealogist on your shopping list? I found some insanely awesome gifts available on the internet that would be perfect! (hint hint)
Have a pic of an ancestor and a handwriting sample? How about creating a double sided pendant with their picture on one side and a message from them on the other?
Shutterfly is a photo gift website that allows you to upload any image to customize LOTS of unique gift ideas. Mugs, photo books, table runners, candles, stockings, Christmas ornaments, even blankets and shower curtains! The possibilities are endless. Make sure you have a good chunk of time (and maybe a snack) to browse through all of Shutterfly's options.
Crafty? Make a handmade family tree cross stitch. www.123stitch.com has some nice patterns like this one:
Why a blog?
Family history just fascinates me. And not just my own. There are many facts and people that have been lost to time. I really enjoy puzzles and sometimes I come across some really interesting mysteries in my genealogy travels. I'll post some of my musings here.
