41st Carnival of Genealogy - It's the Best Yet!

The topic for the 41st Carnival of Genealogy was "If you could have dinner with four of your ancestors who would they be and why?" Jasia has posted the Carnival on her Creative Gene blog at http://creativegene.blogspot.com/2008/02/carnival-of-genealogy-41st-edition.html.

There are 31 wonderful, intriguing and often humorous stories in this Carnival - the biggest ever. And the best Carnival ever, in my opinion. Jasia does a great job in capturing the essence of each post. Please go and read the Carnival, and read the posts from these 31 bloggers. They deserve your time, and you will enjoy their work.

The really neat thing about the Carnival is that there are often new genealogy bloggers on the list and visiting their blogs opens new opportunities for learning about their families and ancestral homes.

The topic for the next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy will be: The Best of The Best! It's Academy awards time... time for the Academy of Genealogy and Family History aka AGFH (an esteemed organization that all genea-historian bloggers who participate in this next edition of the COG will become founding members of) to honor their best blog posts of 2007 in the following 5 categories:

Best Picture - Best old family photo that appeared on your blog in 2007. Tell us which you liked best and why.

Best Screen Play - Which family story that you shared in 2007 would make the best movie? Who would you cast as your family members?

Best Documentary - Which was the best informational article you wrote about a place, thing, or event involving your family's history in 2007?

Best Biography - Which was the best biographical article you wrote in 2007?

Best Comedy - Which was the best funny story, poem, joke, photo, or video that you shared on your blog in 2007?

Thank you, Randy, for your very kind remarks about the COG and for your support in promoting it. Much appreciated!

Isn't it great to see how the COG is growing? I just love that we have so many contributors (until I have to actually put it together and then I've been known to groan and complain a bit about how much time it takes ;-) . You've been a big part of the COG's success having been a supporter from the beginning. I hope you feel some sense of pride too!
