Carnival of Genealogy, 50th Edition is Posted!

Bill West has done a terrific job with the 50th Edition of the Carnival of Genealogy. The topic for this edition is family pets. You'll enjoy the reading the many heart-warming stories of pets remembered long after their time on this earth as well as those who still provide us with companionship and laughter. This edition is a real gem. Don't miss it!

The 51st Edition of the Carnival of Genealogy will be hosted by Thomas MacEntee on the Desination: Austin Family blog.

"The topic for the next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy will be: Independent Spirit. With the upcoming July 4th holiday, there is no more perfect time to honor someone from your family whose life can be summed up in one word – INDEPENDENT! Do you have a relative who was feisty, spoke their own mind, was a bit of a free spirit? Anyone who most people might consider a “nut” on the family tree but you know they really just followed a “different tune?” We all have at least one person whose character and habits may have made them seem “ahead of their time” and now is the chance to tell us their story.

The deadline for submissions will be July 1st."


  1. Jasia--a newbie question. If the carnival is posted to a guest blog, where do I go to enter my post? Getting mine ready. Thanks, Janet Hovorka

  2. Hi Janet,
    Regardless of who is hosting the Carnival, all articles are to be submitted to the web site. From there the information you submit will be automatically forwarded to the person hosting the COG.

    You can submit your article here. I look forward to reading it! :-)

  3. I just found out about the Carnival of Genealogy. Do you have a list of future topics posted somewhere so I can plan ahead? Also a list of guidelines?

  4. Memoir Mentor: Topics for the Carnival of Genealogy are always announced at the end of the previous edition for the following edition. I do not put out an advanced list... I prefer to keep each edition's topic a surprise.
