About the Carnival of Genealogy

Are you familiar with Blog Carnivals? In case you're not, a blog carnival is what happens when someone takes the time to find really good blog posts on a given topic, and then puts all those posts together in a blog post called a "carnival".

From the web site: "We think blog carnivals are a great way for bloggers to recognize each other's efforts, organize blog posts around important topics, and improve the overall level of conversation in the blogosphere. Carnivals come in edited "editions", just like magazines or journals. The fact that carnivals are edited (and usually annotated) collections of links lets them serve as "magazines" within the blogosphere, and carnival hosts can earn their readership by providing high quality collections. "

The Carnival of Genealogy will have it's roots on this blog. Editions will be posted approximately twice a month with article submission deadlines of the 1st and 15th of each month. If you have a blog with genealogy related topics, please consider submitting articles for the carnival. THIS IS AN OFFICIAL CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS!
