The November Genealogy Blog Party: Thankful

by | Nov 2, 2017 | 0 comments

Giving Thanks

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. 🦃

It’s not just the food or even the family gatherings. What I love most is the emphasis on stopping to give thanks and be grateful for what we’ve got.


So, with that in mind, the question for November is simple:

Q: What genealogy “resource” are you thankful for this year?

This “resource” can be almost anything, as long as it is genealogy-related. Examples include:

  • A website (free or paid)
  • A book
  • A specific library
  • Found items (i.e., a family Bible or family letters that were given to you)
  • A conference, seminar, webinar, or class you’ve attended
  • A person 

This is your opportunity to publicly say thanks to whoever – or whatever – you found to be most helpful in advancing your genealogy research this year. 

Be sure to tell us how this resource helped you and what you learned. Your success just might help someone else. 😊
