Carnival Time!

I've been away all day, but just in case anyone missed it, Susan Kitchens has posted the Carnival of Genealogy: Family Wartime Stories with contributions covering the Revolutionary War through the Korean Conflict. A veritable potpourri of human interest stories on how War has impacted families. Susan did a great job in putting the carnival together and adding some extra features and commentary.

Craig Manson was busy writing about copyright and other issues with the IBC and missed out on contributing to the COG, but you can read his story of A Missed Bus instead.

And, just a reminder, PBS will be broadcasting the seven-part series "The War" produced by Ken Burns starting this coming Sunday, September 23rd.

The topic for the next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy will be:
Weddings! Is there a cultural or religious wedding tradition in your family? Do you have a funny family wedding story you’d care to share? Did your grandparents elope? Cousin marry cousin? Is there an especially touching wedding photo in your collection? Do you think your ancestor holds the record for the most times married? Write about a wedding(s) in your family and submit it for the next edition of the COG. The deadline for submissions is October 1st. You can submit your blog article for the next edition using the carnival submission form. Past posts and future hosts can be found on the blog carnival index page.
