Carnival of Genealogy, 73rd Edition

"The Good Earth" edition of the Carnival of Genealogy is posted over at Apple's Tree. I know you'll enjoy this edition... so much variety! With the spring planting season well underway throughout the U.S. it's a good time to reflect on just how much we depend on those who make a living from the land. And not just farmers!

Apple's brewing a pot of Oswego tea (fresh from her garden!) so head on over and pour yourself a mug of tea to enjoy while you're reading the COG. You'll be glad you did!

Call for Submissions! Back by popular demand, the topic for the next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy will be: Swimsuit Edition! Why should Sports Illustrated have all the fun? This is your chance to show off the bathing beauties in your family. Pull out the old photos of Grandma Moses in her seaside bloomers, Auntie Mae in her pin-up girl suit from the 1940s or 50s, cousin Paula in her psychedelic bikini from the 1970s, or even yourself in your Speedo! Let's have some fun here! Memorial Weekend is behind us and that means the start of the summer sun, sand, and lakeside season so let's get in the mood with summer fun photos. What? You don't have any swimsuit photos you dare to share? No problem! Tell us your best family beach stories instead! The deadline for submissions is June 15th. This edition of the COG will be hosted 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 hosting the COG, Apple!
