13th Edition of the Carnival of Genealogy is Posted

The 13th edition of the Carnival of Genalogy is posted on Lee Ander's blog A Matter of Life and Death. Check it out and read about some genea blogger boo-boos. There are some good ones!

Special thanks to Lee for taking on this Carnival edition. Kudos girl!

If genea bloggers boo-boos are not your cup of tea (or after you've finished that cup of tea ;-), get your fingers tapping on your keyboard and type up your wish list for genealogy gifts. The topic of the next Carnival is genealogy gift giving.
We’re making a list and checking it twice. Have you been naughty or nice? Tis the season of gift giving and this next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy will be all about genealogy gifts. What is the best genealogy-related gift you’ve ever received? What genealogy gifts are on your holiday wish list this year? What’s your favorite place to shop for genealogy gifts? Maybe you’d really like a digital camera to capture cemetery tombstones. Or maybe Santa brought you software years ago that got you started with your genealogy addiction. Maybe your heart’s desire is for an old photograph of one of your ancestors. If you’ve been a hobbyist for any time at all you’ve wanted or received something to further your genealogy habit. Let’s hear about genealogy gifts! Blog about your favorites and submit them to the next Carnival of Genealogy.
I have a direct line to Santa so be sure to take advantage of this opportunity to send your wish list to the jolly old guy via a Carnival of Genealogy submission. Why should kids have all the fun? Let's see what you can come up with! Deadline for submissions is December 15th.

Remember the Winter Olympics at Salt Lake City, Utah? I do, every time I put up my Christmas tree. I didn't actually attend the Olympics but did visit all the venues in the area the summer before (2001). It was exciting to watch the prospective contenders train for winter events in the summer. Some very creative methods were used by those Olympians! When the Olympics finally happened in the winter of 2002 I was able to watch from home and recognize all the venues and immediately relate to what the participants had gone through to get there. Very happy memories :-)
