3. The historical holdings I am most thankful for: I'd say it has to be the Latter Day Saints' collection. Besides their own FamilySearch.org, they are responsible for fueling much of what I find in other places, like Ancestry.com. Plus, they're just nice folks.
I'm also grateful for and to our local Genealogy Discussion Group. Since I had my "basic training" there, so many have welcomed me and shared their tips with me. Another fun group of people! (Noticing a theme here?)
Despite the many things I may complain about, there are many other things I'm grateful for: my dear family and friends, my wonderful husband, my furry little cat, my great boss and job, medical advances, having my health... Really, my life in general is pretty darn good. Compared to life for my great-grandparents, grandparents and even my own mom and dad, I've got nothing to complain about and everything to be grateful for. Now is a good time to appreciate my blessings and reflect on that.
