One last thing to say this year

before it all gets too busy.

Happy new year! May it bring you what you want, but more importantly, what you need.

All the best for 2011.

Christmas memories

Some of my strongest childhood memories are of the festive holiday, Christmas and New Years Eve. That final week in the year would bring together family members who had not seen each other for a while, possibly all year round. There would be the usual gossip, banter, arguments but over it all would be a hefty helping of belonging. 

Wherever you are this year and whomever you spend the holiday with, may you have the best of times. 

Merry Christmas and the happiest of new years.

A Christmas offering

My children rush every morning (even on a school day) to open their advent calendars. Okay, I admit, it's the chocolate they're after. When I was a child, there were just pictures of Christmas related items like holly or an angel (how old do I sound?). Still, it was an exciting little offering each day in the countdown to the special day. have put together an advent calendar of geneaology related hints, facts and other offerings. Even though it's now the fourth day of December, you can still open windows one, two and three.

Have a look.
