It’s December and it will be time for Santa to make his sleigh trip before we know it. This week’s challenge by Randy Seaver on Genea-Musings is so time appropriate:
Trade Card in my personal collectiion
Here is my 2023 wish list for Genea-Santa:
I’ve been a really really good genea-buddy this year. I’ve regularly posted family history stories, I’ve contacted those who have left comments or had questions, I’ve shared my research with anyone interested and I even taught a 4-week class for genealogy beginners this past summer. That’s all in addition to teaching my local Anquestors group each month.
My wish list isn’t very long this year either. I am very fortunate that my computer is pretty new, as are my two monitors. I’m up-to-date with software so the tech end is looking pretty good. I don’t really need any books either.
However, I do have some items on my list:
Genea-Santa, would you please point new cousins my way – especially those who have old family Bibles or old family photographs???
Next, kind of along the same idea, could you find lost records for a few of my ancestors? I’d still really love to see a pre-1828 church book for Udol, Slovakia and records from poor little burned courthouses in Buckingham County, Virginia and Marion County, Tennessee. Those records would really help me solve a handful of dead ends.
I told you my list was short this year, so here is my last request.
Would you please give out lots of peace and goodwill along with a generous dose of understanding to each home around the world that you visit? We could really use a lot of that in 2024.
As always, Genea-Santa, there will be cookies and milk waiting for you.
