A quick plug for a genie pal in Lanarkshire - if you are looking for some genealogy themed gifts for Christmas, or for life in general, have a look at Clare Wilson's Etsy Shop at her Treehouse Genealogy site at www.treehousegenealogy.co.uk/etsy-shop.
There is a range of items including tote bags, genealogy themed pictures and jewellery, and some monumental inscriptions, as well as more generic Scottish themed and vintage ephemera.
Some cracking stuff!
