The 54th Carnival of Genealogy is Posted!

I was offline for most of the past week, but I wanted to highlight to those few of my readers who do not read other genealogy blogs that the 54th Carnival of Genealogy was posted earlier this week. Donna Pointkouski of What's Past is Prologue was the guest host for this carnival (and did a fabulous job, by the way!), whose topic was "Your Family Language." Twenty-nine bloggers wrote 30 posts about their genealogical Towers of Babel; mine is here.

Call for submissions! With Labor Day and the end of summer right around the corner it’s time to think about going back to school. So, the topic for the next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy will be: Show and Tell! Remember that fun little exercise you used to do in your grade school days? Here’s your chance to do it again :-) Show us and tell us about an heirloom, a special photo, a valuable document, or a significant person that is a very special part of your family history. Don’t be shy now, show us what you’ve got! This is all about bragging rights so don’t hesitate to make the rest of us green with envy! This is your chance to brag, brag, brag, without seeming like a braggart (you can’t be a braggart when you’re merely following directions ;-)… so show and tell!

This next edition will be hosted by Jasia on the Creative Gene blog. The deadline for submissions will be September 1st. Submit your blog article to the next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy using our carnival submission form. Past posts and future hosts can be found on our blog carnival index page. See ya next time!
