About the Advent Calendar

There is a whole community of genealogical bloggers out there writing on different aspects of their genealogical research and adventures. Our "cheerleader" is Thomas of www.geneabloggers.com, and there's no better time for cheer than Christmas!

This month, geneabloggers will be posting daily memories of Christmas traditions in their families, and I'll be posting along with them. It'll be what I remember (or don't remember) of Christmas growing up here in NZ and I'll also be asking my parents for some of their memories growing up in England. This won't be strictly relevant to Wing as the last Wing Christmas of my ancestors would have been in the 1930s, quite a bit before my time! If you or your family members have a Christmas memory related to Wing, please share them in the comments to each post (upcoming topics can be viewed here), or email them to me and I'll post them as a comment for you.

If you're in the mood for more cheer, more Christmas memories can be found here.

Thanks Alex for the kind words - cheerleader huh? I don't think you'd want to see me in a skirt and pom-poms however!

This is a fun exercise especially since so many of us focus on our ancestors and forget to capture our own family memories especially about Christmas.
