Just the other day I came across a post I wrote last year and had almost forgotten. Imagine my surprise today to discover that Randy Seaver of Genea-Musings blog has generously featured it on
this last week’s Saturday Night Genealogy Fun (SNGF)! (I prepared this last Sunday and forgot to upload -Christmas rushing?)
So if you didn’t see the Deck the Halls Christmas Geneameme I created last year, why not write up your responses and post a comment on this blog and also on Randy’s so we can all have some weekend Christmas fun. Thanks Randy for sharing the fun this year as well as in 2012.
Yvonne from Yvonne’s Genealogy Blog is first cab off the rank (after Randy) in 2013 though Angela from The Silver Voice has also reblogged her story too. Pam from My Maine Ancestry also joined in the fun.
Meanwhile here are the responses from the geneabloggers who joined in for Christmas 2012. They make great reading about the similar experiences we share as well as the regional differences.
