Last Minutes Gifts
For The Family Researcher

Although Christmas was just around the corner, Mum had not finished her shopping. The order from Eatons had been a real disappointment. Ken’s request for a book of jigsaw patterns was out of stock. The set with a white silk scarf and black leather gloves that would match Gord’s newly acquired tweed overcoat was substituted with brown - that just wouldn’t do.

To add to Mum’s dilemma, she overheard Dad say he would like to have some Western books to read but she didn’t have a clue where to find them.

If you have a genealogy buff on your list, I have some suggestions for books that are not usually found in the shopping mall.
