The 64th Edition of Carnival of Genealogy Is Posted

Jasia at Creative Gene has done it again with another fine edition of the Carnival of Genealogy. With the theme Winter Photo Essay, take some time this weekend to read through the entries, perhaps with a hot cup of cocoa and a roaring fire nearby.

The topic for the next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy is:

"The Happy Dance." The Joy of Genealogy. Almost everyone has experienced it. Tell us about the first time, or the last time, or the best time. What event, what document, what special find has caused you to stand up and cheer, to go crazy with joy? If you haven't ever done the Happy Dance, tell us what you think it would take for you to do so." This next edition will be hosted by Becky at kinexxions. Thanks Becky! The deadline for submissions is Feb. 1st.

Submit your blog article to the next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy using our
carnival submission form. Please use a descriptive phrase in the title of any articles you plan to submit and/or write a brief description/introduction to your articles in the "comment" box of the blogcarnival submission form. This will give readers an idea of what you've written about and hopefully interest them in clicking on your link. Thank you!
