Carnival of Genealogy, 77th Edition

The 77th edition of the Carnival of Genealogy has been posted at AnceStories. Miriam has done a wonderful job as hostess! The topic for this edition was: Disasters our families lived through. That's not an easy subject to write about or read about but it was even more difficult for our ancestors to live through. Thanks to Miriam's choice of topic, the family disasters have now been recorded. Do check them out. I think you'll find them fascinating!

Call for Submissions! The topic of the 78th edition of the Carnival of Genealogy will be: Pony Pictures! This is your chance to show off those pony pictures in your family album. Did you ride your first pony at the state fair or on a farm? Did you have to sit on the back and hold on to your older brother? Was your pony real or a rocking horse? Got any pictures of other family members on ponies? Show us the cowboys and cowgirls in your family and tell us the stories to go along with them. Giddyup pony! The deadline for submissions is August 15.

Submit your blog article to the next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy using the carnival submission form. Please use a descriptive phrase in the title of any articles you plan to submit and/or write a brief description/introduction to your articles in the "comment" box of the blog carnival submission form. This will give readers an idea of what you've written about and hopefully interest them in clicking on your link.

Thanks for hosting the COG, Miriam! I really appreciate it!

Thanks for the poster, fM!
