Thanks for coming to the party!



Farewell, wonderful guests.  I hope you've enjoyed getting to know our birthday boys and girls this year!  All of your gifts and comments were greatly appreciated.


Which ancestor are you most excited to meet someday and why?
(and what questions will you ask them?)

Which one means the most to you personally?

"Just ask the previous generation. Pay attention to the experience of our ancestors. For we were born but yesterday and know nothing. Our days on earth are as fleeting as a shadow. But those who came before us will teach you. They will teach you the wisdom of old."  Job 8:8-10 (NLT)

  8. Thanks, Anita, for creating this great resource for us. I have enjoyed following your blog and celebrating with our ancestors. In addition to understanding more family history and feeling connected to these men and women, my favorite part was your gift idea for each person. As a non-gift giver mself, I loved and learned from the insight of a thoughtful gifter. Congratulations on its completion.
