Merry Christmas!

As I prepare to celebrate the Christmas holidays with my family, I would like to take the opportunity to say thank you to my special genealogy family - all of you wonderful people who use and enjoy this site. I have had a wonderful time this year learning about you and your ancestors and hopefully helping you to learn a little more about your heritage. Best wishes for a wonderful holiday filled with family and friends, laughter, love, peace and happiness.

I will leave you with a collection of Holiday cheer - cute, sentimental, enlightening and just plain for fun.
