Update and past genealogical Christmas projects

It has been awhile since I have posted anything on this blog, but not because I have not been working on my genealogy!  I just devoted about 2 weeks to going through all of the hints on ancestry.com, so that now I can keep up with them as they arrive!  I learned and found many new discoveries about family members as I went through all of the hints, and the best part, was finding some family pictures that are posted on other people's trees!  I posted numerous pictures on my tree over the past summer.

I have also been in contact with new to me researchers and that is always a blessing!

I have decided on what my genealogical project for Christmas will be this year, but am not sharing here until after the holidays!  In the past, I have done a couple of different stories of family, one from my Dad's side (the Adamson family) and another from my Mom's side (the Seg/Seeber family).  Last year I did a recipe card that had a picture of my great-grandmother with her original recipe for Swedish bread that I sent out to family members.  It was really fun to do.

I would love to hear about ideas that others have done for projects.  I don't know if my family appreciates the projects as much as I do, but it is fun!


  1. What a great idea a recipe card with a picture of great grandma. I should probably come up with an idea for christmas gift. Always plan to but never quite make it except for one year. Gave every one a generation chart of family. Of course it changes as I do research.

  2. Thanks for the comment! Today I updated a family story that I gave to everyone for Christmas in 2002. Since that time, I have gathered more information and family pictures, so I have included all of those in the update. I will send this updated version out to family at Christmas. (That's not the Christmas project that I have planned to do, however)
