      Hello everyone

      It's getting quite chilly in my neck of the woods and we've had to
      give in and turn the furnace on! Our Canadian Thanksgiving is over and
      that was quite hectic (but enjoyable) with seeing family and friends.

      Now it's time to start gearing up for Hallowe'en and (gulp) Christmas!
      I like to get my Christmas shopping done by end of October so I have
      to get cracking. This year I am giving each of my adult children
      copies of my recently published Family Tree & History books. I'm
      determined to create an interest in genealogy in each of them!

      I also have an idea for Christmas gifts to family that all readers
      might be interested in - and I'll be talking about that on my blog
      sometime after November 28th. I've also got a fun topic in mind for
      Sharing Memories (Genealogy Journal Writing) for Week 48 which happens
      to fall on Sunday October 31st. Why not join us that day at

      Here's what's been happening in October. On my Olive Tree Genealogy

      were published:
