Today’s Genealogy Bargains – Monday, November 26, 2018 – Cyber Monday
UPDATED 11:00 am CST, Monday, November 26th, 2018
Today is Cyber Monday, the last big shopping day of the 4-day Thanksgiving weekend here in the States. Some trivia: the term Cyber Monday came about in the late 1990s when most people still had “dial up” Internet access at home, and waited until the Monday after Thanksgiving to do all their online shopping at their workplace. Most offices had DSL or some type of Internet that was much faster. Now go tell your kids or grandkids about “dial up” Internet and watch their heads explode!
