Wish List Recommendations

It is the time of year when we think about creating a holiday "wish list" and what a perfect time to get some of the genealogy resources you have been wanting. These are gifts you could use to further your genealogical education. Here are some of my recommendations:
  • Genealogy books (see my list below).
  • Membership in the National Genealogical Society which includes subscriptions to the National Genealogical Society Quarterly and the NGS Magazine.
  • Membership in your local or state genealogy society.
  • Registration for a national or local genealogy conference.
  • Registration for an online genealogy course.
  • Genealogy lectures on CD(available from JAMB, Inc.)
  • Subscription to a genealogical journal or magazine.

These genealogy books would be on my wish list if they were not already on my shelf:
