Notes from the past…

"All I want from Genea-Santa is…"


“Dear Mr. Genea-Santa,

I hope you’re having a nice day. I am, too. It’s getting very cold in North Texas, I hope snow is coming tonight! Can you take care of that, Mr. Genea-Santa?

I have been a very good girl this year. I have tried really hard to document all my sources, backup my work and share my finds with my Genea-Pals.

I only have a few things that I would like this year, Mr. Genea-Santa, if that’s ok.

First, I’d really like my great-grandfather William Earl Hall to send me a pretty picture frame to go with a photograph of his headstone. By the way, Great-Grandfather Hall, can you please send me a picture of that headstone?  I guess I don’t even know where you’re buried at…

Next, I promise I’ll be an extra-good girl next year if my 3rd great-grandfather Dr Nathan Blunt Kennedy could get me a little diary book with a lock on it. Kinda like the one I bet he kept when he was in the Civil War. As much as he liked to write doctor stories after the War, I just know he musta had a diary during the War. (Maybe you could just send my your diary, Great-Grandfather Kennedy, instead. Pretty please!)

Just one more thing. Can I please have a pet pig, like my great-grandmother MaMaw Stanley had when she was in the convent when she was a little girl. I promise I’ll feed it and keep it clean and take it for  walk everyday and play with it and love it! Oh, please, Mr. Genea-Santa!

Love, Ruth

P. S. Please give Rudolph a hug for me! And I don’t have a chimney, but if you could leave my presents on the back porch, next to the lawnmower, I’m sure they’ll be ok.”

  1. If I could I’d send you all the snow you want (and still have more than I want left over!) The pig is truly a unique request!

  2. If it snows tonight – keep it over toward your area & leave my little corner north of Dallas dry!
