Don’t forget to ask for family data updates in your end of year holiday mailings. So many of us put off adding family information to our working files because it can be done later. Sometimes this turns into loosing information. Remember to include your new family data in these mailings as well. This can be done as a separate sheet that can be easily discarded for those non-genealogy oriented family members.

Using your contact information, follow up your initial press release with subsequent releases such as a report on sales, family gatherings, signing party, new projects, special offers/sales (holiday free shipping, contributor/family discount), etc.

As the holiday season progresses, we’d like to take the time to remind everyone that a report on the book project in all of your holiday correspondence can increase interest and donated materials.

As we look toward the holidays, many genealogists put their genealogical “hobby” on the back burner as they prepare to gather with family and celebrate.  This is exactly the time you should keep genealogy in the forefront!  Don’t be a pest by asking the same questions every time you see someone.  However, it is a great time to re-establish old connections with holiday cards, calls and notes.  Keep your oral history files in mind as everyone sits around and “visits”.

As you re-established family connections over the holidays, don’t let them slide.  Try to maintain a correspondence of some type with everyone.  You never know when some new bit of information may surface through general communication.
