Three Wishes!


The topic for the next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy is:

Three Wishes!

Genea-Santa is a non-denominational guy. He's happy to accept lists
from members of all faiths and from atheists as well. Don't tell,
but he looks very much like Randy Seaver.

- ¤ -

This is your chance to write a letter to Genea-Santa

- ¤ -

Make a list of 3 gifts you would like to receive this holiday season
from 3 of your ancestors.

- ¤ -

These have to be material things, not clues to your family history
(we're talking gifts here, not miracles!).

- ¤ -

Do you wish your great grandmother had gifted you a cameo broach?
Or maybe you'd like to have the family bible from great great grandpa Joe?
How about a baby doll that once belonged to your dear Aunt Sarah?

- ¤ -

This is a fantasy so you can dream up gift items. They don't have to be actual
items that you know your ancestors owned. However, they do have to
be historically accurate to the time period in which your ancestor lived.

- ¤ -

Do your research. No asking for a new computer from your
great grand aunt! Genea-Santa wouldn't like that ;-)

fM Baby,

Your talents just have no boundaries! You have your creations in quite a few places lately. I can only hope to become as blog-o-riffic as you. Thanks for all you do to make the way a little easier for the rest of us!
