Dee at GenLady posted the 2nd Edition of the "Where Were You?" Carnival, the topic of which was the Great Depression. There were four bloggers who made submissions; mine was the 12th in a series of 16 posts about where my ancestors were living when the 1930 U.S. Federal Census was taken. All of my grandparents and my parents-in-law either grew up as small children or were teenagers helping out their own parents during this difficult time. Life was tough indeed, and the worst financial problems I've ever encountered paled in contrast to what these families went through.
The topic of the 3rd Edition of the "Where Were You?" Carnival is the Civil War. Of course, none of us lived through it. Dee writes, "...where were your ancestors? Who fought for the North…the South? Who lost their house…tell us about it using our carnival submission form." The deadline is April 9th.
