Carnival of Genealogy 63rd Edition Posted

If you are looking for a sweet Sunday morning/afternoon read, then head on over to Creative Gene where Jasia has posted the 63rd Edition of the Carnival of Genealogy.

Participation for this edition which deals with New Year's resolutions is high (with 40 blog owners submitting posts) and I guess that is to be expected since we all like to start the new year off right!  And kudos to Jasia who always does a great job with what I like to call the Mother of All Genealogy Carnivals.

If you are looking to participate in upcoming COG editions (see details for the 64th Edition below) here's one suggestion: when completing the carnival submission form, take time to enter a brief description/introduction to your articles in the "comment" box . Why is this important?  As someone who has run several carnivals myself, there is nothing more daunting than to have to right descriptive comments for each post, especially when you have 40 or more of them.  Some days you just don't feel creative or witty enough to do this, and besides when you enter your own description you as the author of the post have more control over how other's will learn about your post.  Readers will get a better idea of what you've written about and hopefully you'll interest them in clicking on your link.

The topic for the next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy is: A Winter Photo Essay:

Show us those wintertime photo(s) of your ancestors or family members and tell us the story that goes along with them. Winter is here! Let's record it and celebrate it! The deadline for submissions is January 15th.

You can 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!
