"War Stories" Carnival of Genealogy is Online

The 32nd edition of the Carnival of Genealogy about "War Stories" is available at Susan A. Kitchen's blog, Oral Family History Using Digital Tools, - the post is http://familyoralhistory.us/news/view/carnival_of_genealogy_family_wartime_stories/

There were 16 stories submitted, from the Revolutionary War to the Korean War. Susan arranged them in order. What a great job by Susan - she added some graphics where they were appropriate - old maps, etc.

My submission was Patriot Soldier, Isaac Buck.

The topic for the next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy will be: Weddings! Is there a cultural or religious wedding tradition in your family? Do you have a funny family wedding story you’d care to share? Did your grandparents elope? Cousin marry cousin? Is there an especially touching wedding photo in your collection? Do you think your ancestor holds the record for the most times married? Write about a wedding(s) in your family and submit it for the next edition of the COG.

The deadline for submissions is October 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.
