Next year this blog (Cow Hampshire) will celebrate its 15th year. That is a gloriously long time for a genealogy blog to be around. At this point it is easy for me to have forgotten every single topic I’ve written about, and no serious sin for me wanting to republish some of them.
With that in mind, I’ve decided to offer a compilation of all the great Christmas posts of the past. No doubt you will find some you have missed. Topics focus mostly on traditions, decorations, poetry, and food of the past all with a New Hampshire connection.
If you are a genealogist, in order to understand your ancestors, you must study how they lived. Here is your opportunity! Whatever your belief, however you spend the next few weeks, I wish you all a joyous, and safe holiday.
