Tired of shopping? Sit back, relax, and consider a real gift for your family

If you are like me, you have a few more remaining items on your shopping list to buy before Thursday. Should you stop Monday after work, or wait til Christimas Eve? When should you visit the grocery store? Would they really like this gift? Should I give money instead? The questions and options are endless.

We can get so busy during Christmas week, sometimes need to sit back, relax and consider new options. And while the gifts I have are meant to please, there are times I wonder if I ever get the right match for all of those on my list. Have you seen the Peyton Manning commerical where he presents the woman with the mouth guard? I have actually seen the expression and heard the sigh of that woman as she holds the gift between her index finger and thumb from my own family.
Consider stepping back from the traditional way of shopping. Gifts under the tree sometimes only last as long as the wrapping paper.

Give yourself the gift you deserve. Give yourself the time to research your family history. This is the gift which can be passed down from generation to generation. Only if you get started now.


Don't know where to start? One of the Family History Expos can jumpstart your plan. There are expos throughout the country, but if you happen to be in Arizona, the Mesa convention is right around the corner. Join us! Where else can you rub elbow with Tim Sullivan the CEO of Ancestry.com (pictured above) and Lisa Louise Cooke, host of the Genealogy Gems (pictured on the right). Plus, there will be so many opportunities to learn the latest in genealogical research including how to use social networking.
