Holiday ideas for the genealogist...

Make a journal of family traditions and recipes. Print a family cookbook to exchange. Share the customs of our ancestors with the younger generation. Have the older generation tape record stories of how Christmas was celebrated long ago.

Put together a real family tree. This link has a great Christmas tree made of photo boxes.... http://www.thecraftypc.com/chrisfamtre.html

Make a personalized ornament for each one in the extended family. Maybe one that portrays the person's hobby. That reminds me of Days of Our Lives... do they still do that?

Look at this really cool family tree ornament from one of my very favorite places to visit - Bronners.
