My Christmas Genealogy Wish-List

Dear Santa & his Elves at FamilySearch,

I've been a good boy this year, giving aid to researchers left-and-right; from strangers to fellow geneabloggers. I know this to only be a wish-list, but please consider my list and hopefully some will come true and appear on your website, in the year-to-come! For each request, I will describe one good genealogy deed I have done in the past year. I will only request three specific things... because i'm not greedy, of course! :-p

1. Hungarian Church Records
I have helped countless fellow Hungarians who contacted me by email, find out more about their Hungarian heritage. I helped them to determine where in Hungary their family was from and the next proper steps to successful research.

2. German Church Records
I had stumbled upon a blog post by fellow geneablogger, Randy Seaver, and was able to quickly find out information to aid him in his search. He even made a post about it here, and a subsequent post here.

3. Polish Church Records for Barycz and Osobnica; even on microfilm!
I helped a member of the Society of Genealogists (SOG) based in the UK, to create a course on Eastern European research. The course will begin in January.
