Fellow geneablogger Randy Seaver's Saturday Night Fun this week is irresistible: "Take some time from the Christmas shopping and wrapping frenzy - and have a little Genealogy Fun!! Come on, everybody, join in and accept the mission and execute it with precision.
Here's your chance to sit on Genea-Santa's lap (virtually) and tell him your Christmas genealogy-oriented dreams.
Write your Genea-Santa letter. Have you been a good genealogy girl or boy? What genealogy-oriented items are on your Christmas wish list? They could be family history items, technology items, or things that you want to pursue your ancestral quest."
Here's Ol' Myrt's Christmas Wish List
Thank-you stopping by the homes of my grandchildren last year. Seeing the twinkles in their eyes as we once again make little surprises for their parents, tells me all I need to know about this season of giving.
But SINCE Ol' Myrt is sitting here on your lap, and SINCE you are asking, here are my wishes for this Christmas:
1. Can you bring me MORE TIME to get my research and filing done?
2. I'd like some PATIENCE for those documents due from the technologically challenged, not-to-be-named courthouse in Missouri, where my ancestors once lived.
3. Can you encourage the techies at BetterGEDCOM come up with a better file-sharing protocol, so all of my data will easily transfer when I send a file to my new cousin Russ?
4. Can I please have an iPad with wi-fi? (Mr. Myrt can help you with this!)
I've been good, and I promise not to ask for anything else until next year!
PS - Rudolph's pedigree chart is coming along fine. I'll send you the results of my ten hours research by return email.
