18th Edition of the Carnival of Genealogy is posted

As many of you know, there is a "Carnival of Genealogy" posted every two weeks, usually by Jasia at the Creative Gene blog. This edition is posted here.

The topic for this edition is "The 5 Best Research Tips for Specific Research Areas." 9 genea-bloggers contributed to this effort. Please take the time to read the entries - they are all good, and you just might learn something helpful (especially if you have New England, Michigan, Indiana, Polish or Mississippi connections).

The next Carnival of Genealogy will have the topic: Shelter from the storm, stories of the home and hearth. Is there a haunted house in your family? Did one of your ancestors live on a boat? Did you research your grandparents' home and find that someone famous once lived there? Did your family share a hunting cabin or cottage at the lake? What have you learned about Aunt Millie's house from census records? Was a family member's home destroyed by fire, flood, tornado, or a hurricane? It's time to tell all about your family's abode! Write your blog post and submit your blog article to the next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy using our carnival submission form. The deadline for submissions for the next edition will be February 28, 2007.

I will submit something - I hope you do too. This is only as good as the contributions - and the more there are, the better it will be.
