Carnival of Genealogy #29 is posted

The August 1 Carnival of Genealogy (29th edition) is posted at http://footnotemaven.blogspot.com/2007/08/29th-edition-of-carnival-of-genealogy_02.html. The topic is:

"Moral or Legal Dilemmas in Genealogy and Genea-blogging. Which ones have you had to deal with and how did you resolve them, if you did? "

My own submission was "A Challenging Moral Dilemma" (since I didn't want to blog much more about my embarrassment having to apologize to an ... -- oops, never mind! I still think about it!).

Thank you to the 15 genea-bloggers who contributed their articles - we had a few new faces (to me, at least) this time. And thank you to footnoteMaven for hosting it and for doing a fine job on this edition. By the way, why does fM not capitalize the first word of her nom-de-plume? And does she look like the picture on her blog? Inquiring minds want to know!

The topic for the next Carnival of Genealogy will be:

"Genealogical Conferences/Seminars. Just to get you thinking, here are some things you might want to write about. Have you been to a conference you really enjoyed? Is there one you attend every year? Which would you recommend to others and why? Is there one you've always wanted to attend but couldn't? If you could design the "dream conference", what sessions would you have in it? Have you been on a genealogy cruise? What are your pet peeves regarding genealogy conferences?"

The deadline for the next Carnival of Genealogy will be August 16, and Jasia at Creative Gene will host it. You can submit an article for the Carnival on the carnival submission form.

And does she look like the picture on her blog?
