Genealogy during the holidays

The holidays are a great time of year to work on your family tree! If you are interested in finding out about your family then talk to your older relatives. They have a wealth of information to share if you just sit down and talk to them. While the info they share may or may not be 100% accurate, it can provide some clues and get you started with your research. They may also have old records and photos to share that will validate your work. Have fun and let me know if I can help. Buon Natale, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!!
