If you haven't visited footnote Maven's great site yet, Shades of the Departed, make your way over there for the latest edition of Smile for the Camera.
Entitled Stocking Stuffer, you'll see over 20 posts from fellow genea-bloggers about which photograph they would use as a stocking stuffer this holiday season and also read about the ancestor or family member they'd most like to receive such a gift.
The 9th Edition of Smile for the Camera has been announced:
Who Are You? I Really Want To Know!
The word prompt for the 9th Edition of Smile For The Camera is Who Are You - I Really Want To Know? Show us that picture that you found with your family collection or purchased, but have no idea who they might be.
Someone took the time to be photographed, someone took the time to send it to a loved one, someone didn't take the time to identify the photograph. And you really want to know who they are. Bring it to the carnival. Share! Maybe one of our readers can help. Admission is free with every photograph!
Your submission may include as many or as few words as you feel are necessary to describe your treasured photograph. Those words may be in the form of an expressive comment, a quote, a journal entry, a poem (your own or a favorite), a scrapbook page, or a heartfelt article. The choice is yours!
Deadline for submission is midnight (PT) 10 January, 2009
HOW TO SUBMIT:
There are two options:
1. Send an email to the host, footnoteMaven. Include the title and permalink URL of the post you are submitting, your name, and the name of your blog. Put 'Smile For The Camera' clearly in the title of your email!
2. Use the handy submission form provided by Blog Carnival, or select the Bumper Sticker in the upper right hand corner at the Shades of the Departed site.
