One last time I thank you from the bottom of my heart. You're the best!


And you know what comes next, don't you? It's time for another Call for Submissions! The topic for the next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy will be... I don't know, you decide. I'm going to try something different with the 101st edition. I've posted a poll on the left side of my blog with 4 topic choices. Please vote for your favorite. The poll is open until noon (EST) on Monday, December 13th. At that point I'll post the most popular choice here on my blog. Regardless of which topic is chosen, the deadline for submissions will be January 1st. There may or may not be a limit on the number of submissions depending on the topic chosen. I'll let you know about that when I post the official call for submissions on December 13th. Let me know what you like!
