Today’s Tip: Christmas carols can come in handy in genealogy!
Remember that a good conversation starter at the holidays to get folks talking memories and stories is “Tell me what your favorite Christmas carol is, please.”
I learned my Gramps’ were “Christmas is Coming” since it was about England, and “Little Drummer Boy” since he grew up so dirt poor. This led to some marvelous stories he would tell me about Christmas, the holidays, and his life growing up.
This can be a great conversation starter since everyone is comfortable with carols at the holiday and they are friendly and non-threatening. No right or wrong answers to worry about!
So go ahead ….. sing, enjoy and question …… that carol may hold some Holly Jolly Christmas information for your family history!
