For your seasonal gift list

Preparations for Christmas and other seasonable celebrations are underway. Shopping centre parking lots are becoming the "traditional" seasonal nightmare. People are shopping online in ever increasing numbers. It's time to post the annual Anglo-Celtic Connections list of best sellers from Global Genealogy.

Sandra Roberts tells me their very best seller this year has been the Flip Pal Scanner and Case. http://globalgenealogy.com/software/flip-pal/index.htm

 

For books this year's list has a focus on UK items.

No. 1 –Dictionary of Scottish Settlers to Canada before 1869. (Consistently a best seller) http://globalgenealogy.com/countries/canada/general/resources/221004.htm

Sandra and Rick were also keen on "excellent materials" from Ian Maxwell and Chris Paton." For Ian Maxwell especially Tracing Your Irish Ancestors and Tracing your Northern Irish ancestors. For Chris Paton, his books on Scottish Church and Scottish Land Records are excellent as well."
