COG 102: Call for Submissions!

Thanks to the 37 people who participated in the COG topic poll for the 102nd edition! The poll results are as follows: Annual iGene Edition (21); If My Family Were a Tree (8); Genealogy Tech Toy (8). I'm happy to see that there is still a good amount of interest in the annual iGene edition because it's one of my favorites! If you really wanted one of the other choices, don't despair. I'll let you vote on them again next month ;-)

Call for Submissions! The topic for the 102nd edition of the Carnival of Genealogy is: The Annual iGene Awards! For those not familiar with the iGene Awards, you can see the previous years here, here, and here. We'll announce our best blog posts from the previous year (in this case, 2010) in the following 5 categories: Best Picture (that would be a photograph), Best Screen Play (story you would make into a movie including the cast), Best Documentary (investigative research), Best Biography, Best Comedy. Write up a blog post with links to your best articles in these categories and submit it to the COG! Feel free to use the iGene graphic if you'd like. The deadline for submissions is February 1st.

Submit your blog article to the 102nd edition of the Carnival of Genealogy using our 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. Past posts and future hosts can be found on our blog carnival index page.

Thank you! Now, write on!
