Lisa at Small-leaved Shamrock just posted the 10th Edition of the Carnival of Irish Heritage & Culture, whose topic was "For the Love of Ireland." This first-year anniversary edition included eleven contributions ranging from the love of Irish linen to the love of crosses and claddaghs. It's amazing how much one culture has infused itself into our modern American life!
The topic for the 11th Edition will be "My Key to Ireland":
If you have found your ancestral county or village in Ireland, just how did you find your way there? What resources led you to learn the original county or townland or your ancestors? Tell us how you did it and what your feelings were when you made the exciting discovery.
If you have not yet found the area where your ancestors made their homes in Ireland, tell us about the resources that you hope to use to find out. What records and documents do you hope will lead you to that information? How do you plan to go about the search?
If you have always known the place or places where your family hailed from, tell us about them. What draws you there and what else have you learned throughout your search for family history?Share with us your Irish genealogy success story or your plans to "get back to Ireland" within the upcoming 11th edition of the Carnival of Irish Heritage & Culture.
Deadline for submissions to the My key to Ireland edition is Sunday, January 18, 2009. This edition will be published at Small-leaved Shamrock on Tuesday, January 20, 2009.
