Jasia at Creative Gene has posted the 17th Carnival of Genealogy, whose topic is acknowledging those who've inspired our genealogical research. As usual, there are some great posts from many bloggers on this topic, and I encourage you to read them all. My own post, "I'd Like to Thank the Academy...", is shown below.
Jasia is accepting submissions for the 18th Edition of the Carnival of Genealogy; the topic will be "The Five Best Tips for Specific Genealogical Research." You can use the carnival submission form to submit your post. The deadline is February 15th.
