It's Carnival Time!

Two carnivals were posted today. The first was the 9th Edition of the Carnival of Central and Eastern European Genealogy, whose topic was "Research Experiences and Techniques." Jessica Oswalt has hosted this carnival at her blog, Jessica's Genejournal. There were seven submissions by five bloggers, including a first time carnival submitter. (I was not a participant this time.)

The other carnival was the 52nd Edition of the Carnival of Genealogy, whose topic was "Age." Lisa of 100 Years in America hosted this edition, which had 29 submissions by 28 bloggers. My post, "What's Age Got to Do with It?", can be found here; but alas! apparently I was so excited about getting my post finished a day ahead of the due date (instead of the day of, as usual for me), that I forgot to submit it in time. Oh, well! Lisa was so kind to squeeze in my entry! By the way, "well done" to both Lisa and Jessica for all the work they did on their respective carnivals!

The topics for both of these next carnivals will be a Carousel Theme, which means the bloggers may pick their own topic. The due date for the 10th Edition of Carnival of Central and European Genealogy is August 4th; submissions can be entered here. The due date for the 53rd Edition of the Carnival of Genealogy will be August 1 and you can enter your articles here.

Now go enjoy some great reading!
