For many of us, the holidays mean family time. We gather together to celebrate lasting traditions and create new ones, drawing closer to the ones we love and strengthening ties with them. Coming up with meaningful gift ideas for our loved ones, however, is a common struggle. What does she like? What would make him happy? Does he really need another necktie?
Consider the gift of genealogy this holiday season. Whether you are buying for a family history enthusiast, or just want to capture precious family memories, genealogy is always a great gift idea. And it can come in many forms.
