Carnivals Galore!

Three genealogy carnivals were published this weekend, so grab a cold drink (or a warm one, if you're in Chicago!), put up your feet, and enjoy reading the following online publications:

The 15th Edition of the Smile for the Camera! Carnival - They Worked Hard for the Family was posted yesterday at Shades of the Departed. Thirty-one bloggers share photographs of their ancestors engaged in some kind of labor or occupation. Next month's theme will be Bling, Ancestor Bling and will showcase ancestral jewelry.

The 76th Edition of the Carnival of Genealogy - How I Spent My Summer Vacation was posted today at Creative Gene. I really wish I had submitted a couple of posts to this one (and I may write them yet!), but regardless, twenty-three bloggers submitted their good ol' summertime essays. Next month's theme is a bit of a disaster. You'll just have to read my next post to discover why!

The 5th Edition of the Canadian Genealogy Carnival was also summer-themed: Favorite Canadian Vacations (ok, not every vacation has to happen in the summer, but still!). It was also posted today, at looking4ancestors. There are five submissions. The theme of the 6th edition will be Home Sweet Home; the deadline for submission will be September 13th.

Plenty of great summer reading here, folks, while you're trying to keep cool (or warm!). Enjoy!
