From Randy over at Genea-Musings:
Dear genealogists everywhere, it's Saturday Night! Time for some Genealogy FUN.
Your mission, should you decide to accept it (cue the Mission Impossible! music) is to:
What gift that you received for Christmas is your favorite for
genealogy purposes? Book, magazine, hardware, software, website
subscription, research time, DNA test - what was it, and how will it
affect your genealogy research?
Tell us about it in a blog post on your own blog, in a comment to this
blog post, or in a comment on Facebook or Google+ in response to this
3) Come on, spill! And it's OK to respond to this in the days after Saturday too!
1) The gift that I received for Christmas this year that is my favorite for genealogy purposes is... the six month World Explorer membership on Ancestry.com!! Yes, I got (more!) than I asked for. Once it starts (I am hoping that is January 1), I will be hunched over my computer every hour that I am not at work, making the most of my six months!
It will help me tremendously in my genealogy research cause I will actually be able to do some in depth research from home again. I can attach census records to my tree. I can spend hours looking through the census, social security death, birth, military, and all other records the site has to offer. And maybe with the World membership, I can finally take the Tapleys back "across the pond." Oh, the possibilities are endless! I'm VERY excited.
