Christmas gifts for the genealogist in your life – 1
Over the course of the next week or so, I'll be bringing you ideas for Christmas gifts that'll get you into the good books of your family's genealogist. Most are on offer all year round but are now available with either a special gift purchase conditions (such as non-renewing subscriptions) or with a worthwhile seasonal discount.

There's no law that says these treats are only for others. I'm sure you're just as deserving, yourself.

So let's get the ball rolling with a great favourite: Irish Roots magazine, Ireland's long-established and much-loved quarterly publication dedicated to Irish genealogy, heritage and traditions.

Each issue is full of informative and practical articles written by the industry's top genealogists and writers, all independent and unaligned to commercial database suppliers so the reader can be confident of receiving the very best, unbiased and most up-to-date guidance.

The editors have a couple of gift options on sale:

The Irish Roots Gift Pack contains the last three issues of the magazine, a family tree chart to get started and an overview guide on how to commence and pursue your ancestral journey. It's an ideal starter pack for any family member who's been talking about getting stuck into their genealogical research but either hasn't yet found the motivation or doesn't know quite where to start. The Gift Pack costs just €25 / £25 / USA $37 / AUD$42 / CAD $40 including post and packing. Find out more about the Gift Pack.

The Irish Roots Gift Subscription Voucher: This is the Christmas gift that lasts a whole year! A one-year subscription means your loved one will receive four issues of the magazine (usually starting with the current or next issue), direct to their mailbox. The Voucher costs just €25 / £25 / USA $37 / AUD$42 / CAD $40 including post and packing. Find out more about Gift Subscriptions.
