Genea-Blogger Carnival Calendar

Inspired by Miriam's recent post at AnceStories in terms of various April carnivals that genea-bloggers might find interesting, I've created a Genea-Blogger Carnival Calendar using Google Calendars.



Events are designated as "deadline" or "published" (I sometimes submit a post but can't remember when it will be published), and the event details contain links to the carnival hosting site as well as the submission form.

I've inserted an example in this post until I decide where I actually want to place this on my already crowded blog. Perhaps I will just have a hyperlink in the side bar to it.

If you use Google Calendars and want to add this to your current calendar, simply search for Genea-Bloggers under the Public Calendars section.

It can also be accessed via hyperlink here.

For now, I've placed it in agenda format at the very bottom of this blog - the place where no one ever looks, I'm sure!

Thanks, Thomas. Great idea! I created a Google calendar for the society which is working out very well.

I like this idea, Thomas! Glad to know I inspire someone now and again! ;-)

Great idea - as usual - Thomas! I've added it to my Google Calendar, which syncs with Outlook automatically.

Kathry, Miriam and Elizabeth - thanks for the comments!

Kathryn - you've done great work with the new blog for CGS - I was amiss in not adding it to my Blog List but now I've corrected that!

Elizabeth - we haven't heard how your weekend with the California DAR went! I miss your posts!

And Miriam - well, you my friend are a goddess, simply put.

Tom,

What a superb idea. I've placed your calendar on my iGoogle page! Hopefully I won't miss another carnival because I've spaced out the date.
