Wishing you and yours a very happy holiday season!!
I know Santa brought my family some very wonderful genealogy gifts including Tracing Your Irish Ancestors by John Grenham (an incredible book of resources on Irish history and records for those of us with our research still stuck in America) and a gorgeous daggerreotype to complement the ambrotype I received last year. I don't actually know the difference between the two yet, but I can sense a new "To Do" for 2013!
Let's not forget the true meaning of this season, though - family, friends, and giving. No matter what holiday you celebrate, if any, reach out to someone you haven't talked to in a while. Tell someone you appreciate them. Or, to keep up with the theme of this blog, just help a stranger with their genealogy any way you can. It'll only cost you a few minutes.
