My Mother's Day Gift!

My very sweet and loving husband gave me a gift that is so thoughtful. He knows how much I love Genealogy and he heard about a new book on the radio a few weeks ago and thought of me.
He gave it to me for Mother's Day. I had not heard of the book before, Annie's Ghosts written by Steve Luxenberg. The story is about how his family learned their mother had a sister, she had ALWAYS said that she was an only child. The journey of finding out about this sister who had been kept a secret since 1940. It is one of those books you can't put down. I would recommend Annie's Ghosts to all with an interest in genealogy.

You obviously are married to the right man! Good for you--that was a great gift. I may have to check it out---sounds like a wonderful story. My husband worked out of state one time (several times) and when he came home he brought me the book by Sharon DeBartolo Carmack: "Your Guide to Cemetery Research". I was ecstatic. We laughed thinking what some other people might think of such a gift and I was thrilled. Read it cover to cover.

Thanks for the comments. I agree I did marry the Right man 23 years ago. He knows what I'm interested in and does a great job on gifts.
I know a lot of people who would think that the book was a crazy gift. I was thrilled and that's all that matters.I may have to check out your book Becky,"Your Guide to Cemetery Research"
