Looking to Get Your Grandkid a Genealogy-Related Gift?

Looking to Get Your Grandkid a Genealogy-Related Gift?

by Kerry Scott on 14 October 2010

If you’re looking for a gift for a child (age 4-8 or so), you should know about this book:  Fancy Nancy:  My Family History.  I ordered it a while back, and it finally came today.  It’s fantastic!  My oldest kid is five, and she can’t get enough of Fancy Nancy.  I can’t wait to give this to her.  It fits right in with my master plan to make her my genealogical apprentice.  BWAHAHAHAHA.

Those kids look positively traumatized by their papier-mache, probably-comes-to-life-at-night-and-stands-at-the-foot-of-your-bed-watching-you-sleep Santa.

I know. This post is pretty much just an excuse to use that photo, because it’s such a fine specimen of Victorian creepiness that I HAD to use it.

Victorian creepiness indeed.

Wow, Are those children in shock? I’ve got the heebie jeebies and I’m in a well-lighted office 100 years later. (And it is really hard to reach the keyboard from under the desk, now.)

Makes me think of my of my take on a photo of my son’s reaction to a Santa visit a few years back: “That guy is kinda scary! But he has toys! but he’s scary! toys! scary! Scary Toys! Yay!”

Just found your blog and am enjoying it – will be checking out the book to begin my own genealogical minioning as well – thanks!

Oh, that photo of your son is TOO funny. My youngest is three and has the same sort of love-hate relationship with Santa. He doesn’t want to go within 25 feet of him, but he’d like him to go ahead and leave the gifts.
