Advent Calendar – December 4, 2009


Christmas Cards

Did your family send cards? Did your family display the ones they received? Do you still send Christmas cards? Do you have any cards from your ancestors?

UPDATE: here are some highlights from a wonderful batch of posts about Christmas cards!

  • Paula of Paula’s Genealogical Eclectica remembers receiving and sending Christmas cards and still has her “lists” from years ago, although she said it can be sad to see how many have passed on.
  • Check out Sherry of Family Tree Writer and the touching poem that she and her family sent out with their Christmas cards in 2001.
  • It has been a hoot following Carol at Reflections From The Fence and her latest trip down South.  She admits to having sent “those annoying family newsletters” starting in 1971!
  • Kay at Kay B’s Place shows us some wonderful old cards as well as more recent ones as well as creative ways of displaying Christmas cards.
  • Finally, Gini at Ginisology reveals her love of Christmas cards which includes making them.  And check out the great cards she has from Germany!

Here is a listing of all of today’s Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories posts from GeneaBloggers’ member blogs:

About Thomas MacEntee

What happens when a “tech guy” with a love for history gets laid off during The Great Recession of 2008? You get Thomas MacEntee, a genealogy professional who’s also a blogger, educator, author, social media connector, online community builder and more. Thomas was laid off after a 25-year career in the information technology field, so he started his own genealogy-related business called High Definition Genealogy. He also created an online community of over 3,000 family history bloggers known as GeneaBloggers. His most recent endeavor, Hack Genealogy, is an attempt to “re-purpose today’s technology for tomorrow’s genealogy.” Thomas describes himself as a lifelong learner with a background in a multitude of topics who has finally figured out what he does best: teach, inspire, instigate, and serve as a curator and go-to-guy for concept nurturing and inspiration. Thomas is a big believer in success, and that we all succeed when we help each other find success.
