Carnival of Genealogy, Edition 1

This first edition of the Carnival of Genealogy will feature timely articles about new technology in the field of genealogy. Since I've only had a few days to throw this edition together, it's a little brief. But I think you'll get the idea. Here's what others in the field of genealogy are blogging about...

    • Extra! Extra! Read All About IG!
      The folks that publish Internet Genealogy magazine have a great offer for an extra free issue (online). This issue features information on German research... which should be of interest to those researching their ancestors from the Prussian section of Poland as well.

    • Announcing Podcasts on EOGN!
      I just love how technology has infiltrated the world of genealogy. It seems like just yesterday when I was trying to sell the idea of an "online" genealogy meeting to a genealogical society here in Michigan. They didn't buy it. Too cutting edge for them. It wasn't that long ago either. All it was, really, was a chat room meeting exclusively for society members. An antiquated idea relative to the podcasts being produced these days. Time and technology march on!

      One of these days we may be able to save ourselves the time and trouble of doing genealogical researach by just giving up a sample of our DNA. See what's new in Genetic Genealogy.

      Bring on the Eagle Scouts! I know of a few cemeteries in the Detroit area that could use their help! Check out the ultimate cemetery web site... each stone is individually photographed and all the known information is included. Arial shots of the cemetery too!
