I suspect that most of my choices for this week's Saturday Night Genealogy Fun challenge will be different from those of other posters.
Here is your assignment, should you decide to accept it (you ARE reading this, so I assume that you really want to play along; cue the Mission: Impossible! music!):
1. What are the top 10 genealogy-related books that helped you the most in your family history research?
2. Write your own blog post, leave a comment on this post, or write something on Facebook.
Here's my list.
• Finding Our Fathers: A Guide to Jewish Genealogy, Dan Rottenberg
