Carnival of Genealogy #30 is posted

The 30th edition of the Carnival of Genealogy is posted by Jasia at the Creative Gene blog - here. The topic is Genealogy Conferences and seminars.

There are 11 submissions this time, and some of them are quite humorous. Please take a few minutes and go read all of them.

The topic for the next Carnival of Genealogy is: Confirm or Debunk: Family Myths, Legends, and Lore. Family myths or legends are those widely circulated yet unconfirmed stories that may range from the origin of an ancestor to more complex lore. Everyone who looks into family backgrounds, however we label them, sooner or later comes across the truth or untruth of these myths or legends. What does one do when confronted with evidence contrary to a long-standing family legend? What are some of the legends that the participants have confirmed or debunked or would like to confirm? How did family react to the discovery of the real story? Maybe the real story was even better than the myth?

The next edition of the COG will be hosted by Craig Manson at GeneaBlogie. The deadline for submissions is September 1st. You can submit your blog article for the next edition using our carnival submission form. Past posts and future hosts can be found on our blog carnival index page.

Thanks to Jasia for her hard work in putting most of these carnival posts together.
