It is so hard to find something related to family historians (other than relations!) to give as a present or send a greetings card. Family Tree Folk established an online shop in 2007 just for that reason. I was unable to find a suitable card or some inexpensive little items (stocking fillers) to raise a smile with my genealogy friends.
Using humour that is in the main only understood by fellow genealogists we designed and produced a range of gifts such as keyrings, magnets, mouse mats, pens etc. To accompany these we produced a range of themed greeting cards including Christmas, Mothers Day and Fathers Day.
We also have a serious side (genealogy is a serious pastime as well as fun though) and we sell a comprehensive range of magnifiers for genealogists along with archival and acid free products. The range has grown over the years and continues to do so. Take a look at our website at the products we offer as well as informative sections and details of the full research facility we offer.
Christmas is approaching treat your friends (or even yourself) to something they can “relate” to. May be worth passing on our website to other members of your family as a prompt to buy you something. One can live in hope of that, almost like finding that elusive ancestor! Happy Researching.
