Although I wasn't able to participate in this edition of the always intriguing Carnival of Genealogy, please take time to make a visit today and check out the 58th Edition over at Creative Gene.
What I like about this edition, which asks bloggers to submit eerie or haunting stories of their ancestors, is trying to pick which posts are fact and which are fiction!
Jasia's next tour de force is one in which I definitely need to participate:
The topic for the next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy is: Politics and Our Ancestors. The next edition of the COG will be published on Election Day in the U.S. (November 4). So it's the perfect time to research and reflect on what we know (or can find out) about our family members' involvement with the election process. Did one of your ancestors run for office? Who was President when your immigrant ancestors first set foot on American (Canadian, Australian, etc.) shores? What do you know about your grandparents' voting record? Which of your ancestors was first eligible to vote? Do you have any suffragettes on your family tree? What did the electoral process mean to your ancestors? Do you have a personal Election Day memory you'd like to share? Think about it, write about it, and submit it for the next COG! The deadline for submissions is November 1.
