For those few of my readers who are not also subscribers to Jasia's Creative Gene, she posted the 39th Edition of the Carnival of Genealogy there yesterday. The topic was "New Year's Resolutions," and as always, there are some fabulous and interesting posts written by 21 bloggers, including some first-time COGgers (my own submission can be found here)! One post I especially enjoyed was "Resolutions" by Colleen of The Oracle of OMcHodoy. To help her with her goal of getting back to the basics, she developed a research goal sheet. I'm going to have to leave a comment on her post and ask if she'll e-mail me a copy of it. I have a thing for charts and forms!
Jasia tells us "the topic for the next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy will be: Living-relative connections made during your research processes and/or blog. Who found you or how did you find them? Were they helpful or did they send you on a wild goose chase for further information? How much and what kind of information did they share with you? What did you share with them? What kinds of contacts have you had... in person, via phone, online chat, email, snail mail, web casts? (If you're not comfortable using their real names you might want to consider using pseudonyms.)" The deadline for submissions is January 15th, and they can be submitted here.
