Genea-Musings Saturday Night Genealogy Fun: What What Did Santa Bring You?

Saturday Night Genealogy Fun posted at Randy Seaver's blog Genea-Musings asks "What Did Santa Bring You?"

Here are my answers:

1) What gift that you received for Christmas is your favorite for genealogy purposes? Book, magazine, hardware, software, website subscription, research time, DNA test - what was it, and how will it affect your genealogy research?


 Santa brought me a mtDNA Plus testing kit from Family Tree DNA.  I am looking forward to the results to see my ethnicity and finding new family information.  I  purchased for myself a YDNA37 test from Family Tree DNA for my father to submit using my Christmas gift money.  I am hoping that dad's DNA will help me track down additional relatives.  I also received two books - Tombstones of Your Ancestors by Louis Schafer and Walking With Your Ancestors by Melinda Kashuba.  So far both books have been a joy to read - just love learning new things!

2) Tell us about it in a blog post on your own blog, in a comment to this blog post, or in a comment on Facebook or Google+ in response to this post. 

Done!

3)  
 Come on, spill!  And it's OK to respond to this in the days after Saturday too!

Done!
