CARNIVAL OF GENEALOGY POSTED
The 51st edition of the Carnival of Genealogy has been posted! This edition was hosted by Thomas MacEntee of Destination: Austin Family. Thanks Thomas for a great job!



The topic was Independent Spirit. It's always surprising how so many people can take the same topic and make it uniquely their own.


The topic for the next edition is AGE and will be hosted by Lisa at 100 Years in America. (It almost feels like I'm announcing - Party at Lisa's!)


Until Next Time – Happy Ancestral Digging!
