The 45th Edition of the CARnival of Genealogy is Posted

Jasia has just posted the 45th Edition of the CARnival of Genealogy over at her blog, Creative Gene. The topic of this CARnival is "Cars as Stars of Our Family History." I believe this may be the biggest carnival yet, with 43 posts submitted by 34 authors, according to Terry. Every family has car story (or two or twelve!), and these geneabloggers are no different. Love 'em or hate 'em, cars have been a part of everyone's family history since their invention (my own submission is 1967 Model No. 1). I encourage you to read these excellent posts, and then perhaps take some time to write down your own car memories. You may also like to record your stories of how you learned to drive, and my journal prompts from Week Twenty-Four: Learning to Drive over at my other blog, AnceStories2: Stories of Me for My Descendants can give you some ideas on how to do that.

The topic of the next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy will be "What Traits Run in Your Family?" Here are some things to consider:
Which of them did you inherit? Do you have your mother's blue eyes? Your grandfather's stubbornness? Your aunt's skill with knitting needles? Is there a talent for music in your family? Or do you come from a long line of teachers? Have you ever looked at an old photo and recognized your nose on another family member's face? Tell us all about your family traits and please submit your articles by the deadline, April 15th (no inheritance taxes will be assessed ;-) . Thanks to Lisa Alzo for the topic suggestion!
