54th Edition Of The Carnival Of Genealogy Is Now Available!

As Jasia of Creative Gene takes a well-deserved rest as the Carnival of Genealogy's "hostess with the mostest," we have a new hostess for the 54th Edition: Donna Pointkouski who runs the wonderful What's Past Is Prologue blog.

With the topic entitled Family Language, you'll discover a Tower of Babel constructed by close to 30 genea-bloggers. Donna has done a great job of noting each entry - as a past host of the COG, I know that this is not an easy task to say the least.

And now for the next edition of COG:

Call for submissions! With Labor Day and the end of summer right around the corner it’s time to think about going back to school. So, the topic for the next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy will be: Show and Tell! Remember that fun little exercise you used to do in your grade school days? Here’s your chance to do it again :-) Show us and tell us about an heirloom, a special photo, a valuable document, or a significant person that is a very special part of your family history. Don’t be shy now, show us what you’ve got! This is all about bragging rights so don’t hesitate to make the rest of us green with envy! This is your chance to brag, brag, brag, without seeming like a braggart (you can’t be a braggart when you’re merely following directions ;-)… so show and tell!

The home of COG returns to Creative Gene and the dazzling hosting skills of Jasia. The deadline for submissions is September 1st. Submit your blog article to the next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy using the carnival submission form. Past posts and future hosts can be found on the blog carnival index page.

If you haven't participated in COG, now's your chance to get in on all the fun. See you on the genea-blogger school yard!

No matter how low I'm feeling I get a lift from reading your comments about me. I only wish I was all the person you make me out to be!

Thanks for promoting the COG, Thomas. Always appreciated!
