A #Genealogist's Christmas Wish List | @Ancestry @NYTArchives #Ancestry #ChristmasFun #Holidays #photography

Earlier today I found some great social media posts put out by Ancestry and I thought I'd share the fun with you!

Here is the first one from their Instagram account that talks about "A Genealogist's Wish List" (it's going to be written down underneath the photo just encase you cannot read it):

If you can't read the above photo here is what it says...

A Genealogist's Wish List
  • 1890 Census
  • Some spit from my dead Great-Grandmother
  • A Brick-wall Buster K3000
  • The restoration of records from 3 burnt courthouses
  • That missing page from my ancestors pension file
  • The long-lost Family Bible
That's not too much to ask, right?


Then ....... later on today I found this tweet that @Ancestry had retweeted from @NYTArchives about the Rockefeller Christmas Tree!!

If the Twitter link (above) doesn't work than check out this snapshot from @NYTArchives's post link...


I hope you all are enjoying putting up and holding your own holiday traditions this year ... now if only Santa would somehow find a way to complete that above wish list. Does anyone have some spare magic dust to help out? =0)

My Mother's Family Tree Display | #FamilyTree #Genealogy #HomeDecor

So this past Thanksgiving I spent it at my parents house and I wanted to show off the lovely family tree photo display that my mother has created in her entryway on her living room wall. She has it so she can interchange and update the photos when needed but has a great mixture of old and new photos.

Here is what I posted of her display recently on my Instagram account:

But to get a better view check out this photo:

I really love it! She did such a good job! Does anyone have anything similar in their homes?

She thought she was Irish — until a DNA test opened a 100-year-old mystery | The Washington Post

I found this story through my mom and I was fascinated by it! As I've been a genealogist for about 18 years and I am definitely the open-minded sort when it comes to what "the truth" might hold about our past relatives. Yet, I'll agree that some people do take DNA tests thinking that all they know will never change ... and for some that may be true ... but to do the DNA tests you need to have an open mind.

So here is Libby Copeland's Washington Post article called, "WHO WAS SHE? A DNA TEST ONLY OPENED NEW MYSTERIES." ::
