Since it has recently been Christmas, I thought it would be fun to do the 12 days of Christmas genealogy style. This genealogy “song” refers to many of the records available, particularly through familysearch.org as well as referring to pricegen’s list of databases on our website. There are so many records available now for countries throughout the world as well as for the United States.
