Gift Ideas for Genealogists


A family history gift is a special way to tell someone how much you care for them. Sometimes finding that unique gift is hard to do. There are gifts you can get for the “genealogy addict” that will make them smile. They will appreciate your thinking of them and their passion in doing their family history.

Some of us have family members who do not do genealogy. But, they may really enjoy receiving a family history gift. You can do the research yourself or hire someone to do it for you.I suggest a framed pedigree! Consider framing a picture with a story about it. Take an individual and find documents and other items and wrap them up with a picture of the individual.

Here are some other ideas for gifts for that special person:

Flip Pal Scanner
Subscription to a Webinar series
Framed pictures or collage of family
Binded copy of their family history (Kinko’s can do this from CD)
Subscription to their favorite genealogical site
CD/DVD’s
Research forms (Pedigrees, Family Group Sheets, Research Logs)
Generation Charts
“How To” books on Genealogy
Books of the Country they are researching
Pillows/crafts with genealogy sayings
Genealogy cross stitch charts
T Shirts
Office Supplies
Disposable Camera and/or Film
Archival storage boxes
Magazine Subscription
Cassette Recorder
Donation to favorite genealogy organization
Go on a Cemetery Hunt with them
Atlas and Maps
Child Care
Pet Sitting
Digital Frames

Most of us have a collection of photographs and documents. Take time to arrange them by family and make copies of them or scan them to a CD. This would make a great gift to other members of the family. Seeing a document with their ancestor's signature might just make their day. Seeing a photograph with a face looking back at them with similar attributes that they or their children have would be a wonderful gift.

The most special gift I can receive, and you might consider, is to sit and listen to their stories. Call them often and ask them how their research is going. Show an interest in what they are doing, even though it may not be something you are interested in at that time. When they need to go on a research trip or even a local trip to the library, see if they might need your assistance. This is a free, but much appreciated gift, the gift of yourself!

Can you think of other gifts, maybe something you would like to receive? Please come share it in the Genealogy Forum!
