Buying a holiday gift for someone who’s into genealogy and family history? (And it’s totally, 100 percent acceptable if the person you have in mind is yourself.)

Here’s a list of gifts that I and the other genealogists I know would love to find under the tree. If you’re ordering from Family Tree Shop, take shipping deadlines (at the bottom of this post) into account, or choose one of our many downloadable genealogy guides, cheat sheets or videos.

  • A membership to the person’s local genealogical society. Search online for the town or county and genealogical society.
  • A DNA test from one of the above subscription sites or from Family Tree DNA.
  • Help and company while scanning old photos and documents, traipsing through a cemetery or looking up local records at the library. This might not sound like much, but many genealogists would give anything to have a loved one express interest in his or her research.

Some important dates for ordering Family Tree Shop books and other physical items:

  • Wednesday, Dec. 16: last day to order in-stock items to arrive before Christmas with standard or ground shipping (orders over $25 include free standard shipping in the lower 48 US states)
  • Friday, Dec. 18: last day to order in-stock items to arrive before Christmas with 2-day shipping
  • Tuesday, Dec. 22: last day to order in-stock items to arrive before Christmas with overnight shipping
