Carnival of Genealogy, 71st Edition

Donna has posted the 71st edition of the Carnival of Genealogy. The topic for this edition is, "local history", and boy oh boy will you read about some fascinating history! This is one great history lesson from beginning to end. You'll be impressed with the investigative and research skills used. Donna has done a terrific job of putting this history-trip together. Twenty-five authors participated which makes for one great read! Head on over and check it out!

It is time for the next Call for Submissions! The topic for the next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy will be: Mothers! Mother’s Day is right around the corner and this is the perfect time to honor your mother, grandmother, godmother, step mother, den mother, aunt, neighbor, or friend who happens to be a mother. If you’ve written about your own mother for the COG before, consider writing about another mom on your family tree. Let’s make all our moms famous! The deadline for submissions is May 15th and next edition will be hosted at here at Creative Gene.

Submit your blog article to the next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy using the 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 blogcarnival 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.

Thanks for the COG poster, fM!

Super thanks for hosting the COG, Donna! Terrific job!
