Carnival of Genealogy on Surnames is posted

Jasia at the Creative Gene blog has posted the 28th edition of the Carnival of Genealogy at http://creativegene.blogspot.com/2007/07/carnival-of-genealogy-28th-edition.html.

There are 20 contributors this time, with a varied blend of single surnames, many surnames, some unique musings about surnames, plus some humor.

footnoteMaven posted a wonderful blog about the different types of surnames with a list of references and a bibliography - worthy of publication in a book or magazine, at http://footnotemaven.blogspot.com/2007/07/whats-in-name.html.

A funny post by Janice at the Cow Hampshire blog shares her search for the LNU and UNK family names - at http://cowhampshire.blogharbor.com/blog/_archives/2007/7/5/3072797.html.
There are lots more - go read them all!

The next Carnival of Genealogy will be about Smile For The Camera! "We all have them, boxes of family photographs. So, show us your favorite photo(s)! Tell us everything about them. Who or what is the photo of, when was it taken, where was it taken, where did you get it, who was the photographer, why is it one of your favorites? Does it commemorate a special occasion, is it a treasure, a mystery, or is it just plain weird, strange or unusual? Share with us the stories of your favorite pics from your family photo albums.The next edition of the COG will be hosted by footnoteMaven on the footnoteMaven blog. The deadline for submissions will be August 1st, so crack open those photo albums and start blogging!"
