The Genealogy Blog Party: Holiday Twofer

by | Dec 1, 2017 | 0 comments

A Holiday Twofer

This month, you get TWO blog parties for the price of one! 🤗

I actually had two ideas for the December Genealogy Blog Party, and I couldn’t decide which to choose. So I chose both!

You are welcome to add a post to one or both blog parties.


GBP #1: What was your BEST genealogy find this year?

You’ve worked hard to track down those ancestors this year. What did you find?

  • Did you break down a brick wall?
  • Did you recover a family artifact?
  • Did you make an unexpected DNA discovery?
  • Did you meet a new cousin or other family member(s)?

Tell us about it, and let us share your joy! 😀

GBP #2: Cookie Exchange

Who doesn’t love a holiday cookie party? 🍪

Since we can’t get together in person to exchange actual cookies, let’s share our favorite holiday cookie recipes.

  • The recipe must be for a type of cookie or cookie-like baked item (clear as mud?).
  • If you’re not sharing a holiday recipe, you’ll get bonus points for telling how to “festive” it up.
  • Extra credit for sharing how this recipe is part of your holiday tradition or celebration.
