I am so excited to be hosting the 6th Edition of the Carnival of Genealogy especially since there are so many great posts!
Janet McMullan presents Best Tools for Family Tree posted at English Ancestors.
Greta Koehl presents My Three Aunts: Nobody’s Fools posted at Greta's Genealogy Bog, saying, "It was next to impossible for me to limit the subject of this article to just one person, so I have written about the three aunts who played big roles in my life; each of them personifies a different aspect of "common sense" and "keeping it together.""
Bill West presents West in New England: COOL posted at West in New England, saying, "My Dad never seemed to lose his cool...except once!"
Randy Seaver presents Della (Smith) Carringer had it all together! posted at Genea-Musings.
Dorene Paul presents Paul R. Orshoski, Sr. posted at Graveyard Rabbit of Sandusky Bay, saying, "My dad, Paul R. Orshoski, Sr. always made people feel good about themselves. He always had an encouraging word, even though he was not highly educated, and he was a little guy. He had a wonderful sense of humor, and made friends wherever he went. He worked tirelessly for the PTA, church, Little League, and several charities. He died at age 55, and his common sense, great advice, and loving words are truly missed."
Elizabeth Powell Crowe presents Genealogy before the Internet posted at Crowe's Nest Genealogy Blog by Elizabeth Powell Crowe.
Linda Hughes Hiser presents Nobody's Fool--Jessie Pool VanGilder posted at Flipside, saying, "My great grandmother: a story of courage, resourcefulness and kindness in the face of tragedy."
Jasia presents Mom Was Nobody's Fool posted at Creative Gene. Read about the wonderful piece of jewelry Jasia's mom left her and how her mother saved up for such a purchase.
Schelly Talalay Dardashti presents Tracing the Tribe: The Jewish Genealogy Blog: My mother, the genius! posted at Tracing the Tribe, saying, "The wise ways - say that three times fast! - of my mother."
footnoteMaven presents In The Competent Hands Of Louis Salter posted at footnoteMaven, saying, "We can no more take credit for our ancestors' accomplishments, than blame for their failures!"
Wendy Littrell presents Meet Mom! « All My Branches Genealogy posted at All My Branches Genealogy, saying, "This article about my mom is NOT a bunch of "hooey"!"
And finally, I present Mom Made Sense posted at Destination: Austin Family, saying, "Mom was a real straight-shooter - she said what was on her mind and you always knew where you stood with her. And she didn't tolerate fools."
That concludes this edition. And now it's time for a Call for Submissions! In keeping with the month of March being National Women's History Month, and March 8th being International Women's Day, the topic for the next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy will once again be: A Tribute to Women. Write a tribute to a woman on your family tree, a friend, a neighbor, or a historical female figure who has done something to impact your life. Or instead of writing, consider sharing a photo biography of one woman's life. Or create a scrapbook page dedicated to a woman you'd like to honor. The next edition will be hosted at Creative Gene. The deadline for submissions is March 15th.
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. Past posts and future hosts can be found on our blog carnival index page.
