Genealogist Xmas Wish List, Identifying Old Photos, Cemetery Walks and more
- Hi everyone
Are you ready for the holiday season? Maybe you'd like to check out the
Baker's Dozen Genealogist Wish List at
http://www.olivetreegenealogy.blogspot.com/ "All I want for
Christmas..." Either leave it lying out for your loved ones to see (for
gifts for yourself!) or use it to figure out what to get another avid
genealogist in the family
Also if you've inherited old family photos but have no idea what time
period they are from, you might want to watch "5 Types of Early 19th
Century Photographs - a YouTube
on the Olive Tree Genealogy YouTube Channel at
Learn about the 5 main types of photos from the 1800s and the time periods
in which they were produced. The video has many examples of these types.
The November Genealogy Challenge was well met and several people submitted
their cemetery photos which are being made into videos for the Cemetery
Walks on YouTube. See
http://www.olivetreegenealogy.blogspot.com/p/cemetery-walks_26.html for a
complete list of what's online and what is waiting in the wings!
One last thing - Olive Tree Genealogy just published Case #10 for Found Dog
ID Tags of Soldiers. One of the missions of Olive Tree Genealogy is to
reunite found Dog ID Tags of soldiers with their descendants. Readers of my
blog pitch in to help find loved ones.
The list of our cases and whether the dog tags have gone home to
descendants or we are still working on finding family is at
I'll give my Canadian listers a spoiler - next week there is a case coming
up (Case #11) which involves a Canadian soldier from WW1. His dog tags have
been found and the finder desperately wants to see them go back to family.
Please take a peek and see if you can help with any of the open cases! What
a great Christmas present that would be for some family - to have their dad
or grandpa's dog tags returned.
