2nd Carnival of Irish Heritage and Culture is Posted

The second Carnival of Irish Heritage and Culture has been posted by Lisa at Small-leaved Shamrock, entitled "They Say There's a Pot of Gold at the End of Every Rainbow." With the emphasis being on Irish research, there's a wealth of resources, from books to online data to DNA, that have been blogged about in thirteen posts by eleven writers. If you have Irish--or Scots Irish--ancestry, you won't want to miss this. One of the posts has even been written by someone with no known Irish ancestry!

My own post for this carnival is Resources for Irish Genealogical Research from a Beginner's Perspective. The next carnival's topic is Irish Places:

If you know it, tell us about the county, city or village in Ireland where your family originated. If not, tell us about a place that figured prominently in an Irish history book that you enjoyed, or a place that you visited (or hope to visit) that is steeped in Irish history. The Irish place that you describe need not be in Ireland itself. Your entry can include a place where the Irish settled once they emigrated, or a place that has seen Irish culture grow within its boundaries.

The submission date is January 29th, and the third carnival will be posted on February 1st, St. Brigid's Day. You can enter your post here.
