Saturday Night Genealogy Fun: What did Genea-Santa Bring You?

This week for Saturday Night Genealogy Fun, Randy Seaver followed up on his post from December 12, when he asked people to write letters to Genea-Santa.

1) What gift that you received for Christmas is your favorite for genealogy purposes? Book, magazine, hardware, software, Web site subscription, research time, DNA test — what was it, and how will it affect your genealogy research?

2) Tell us about it in a blog post on your own blog, in a comment to this blog post, or in a comment on Facebook or Google+ in response to this post.

Come on, spill!  And it's OK to respond to this in the days after Saturday, too!

I haven't actually received any wrapped gifts this year, for Christmas or Chanukah, but I look at time spent with family as a very precious gift.  So far my favorite gift has been spending Christmas Eve with my grandchildren, which I wrote about on Christmas Day.  Coming in as a close second, however, was my face-to-face visit today with cousins with whom I have been communicating only by e-mail up 'til now.  I had a lovely visit, and they asked how they can help me with the family research, which doesn't happen very often!  (That's their new puppy Daisy in the photo with us.)

Now, when the cousin from another branch of the family tells me his Y-DNA test results have come in, that'll be a huge present, but it won't be for several weeks.  Hmm, maybe in time for my birthday!
