The Carnival of Genealogy - 56th edition - Part I has been posted by Lori Thornton over at Smoky Mountain Historian. For this edition of the COG, bloggers were supposed to list the ten books in their genealogical libraries that they find absolutely essential. In "COG 56 Part II" Lori gives us a compilation of the submissions. Guess which one is first! I think this was a good exercise. I haven't gotten through the entire COG yet, but I'm sure that my reading list will increase!
Lori announced the topic for the next edition of the COG, which will be: I read it in the news! "Newspapers can be a wonderful source of family history information. Share some aspect about your family history that you learned about in a newspaper. Articles, advertisements, obituaries, classified ads, photos... all are fair game if they appeared in a newspaper. What did you learn about your family from this information? Was the information accurate? How did you learn about this information... online search? Perusing old newspapers? A clipping saved by a relative? Fill us in on your family scoops... who in your family was in the news?"
The deadline for submissions is October 1st. Use the carnival submission form to submit your post. Past posts and future hosts can be found on the carnival index page. Be sure to read the additional information, at the bottom of the carnival post, before submitting your contribution.
