The iGene Awards - Carnival of Genealogy #42 is Up

The 42nd Carnival of Genealogy has been posted by Jasia on the Creative Gene blog - read it at "Carnival of Genealogy, 42nd Edition." The theme for this Carnival was the iGene Awards for 2007 - the Best of the Best.

There are 23 submissions to this Carnival, each listing five posts selected by the individual blogger for Best Picture, Best Screenplay, Best Documentary, Best Biography and Best Comedy. Needless to say, these are the Best of 2007 by the founding members of the Academy of Genealogy and Family History.

I haven't read all of them yet, because my grandsons are still here. But I will! My own submission was "It's Academy Awards Time - the AGFH of Course!"

The next Carnival of Genealogy theme will be Technology. What technology do you most rely on for your genealogy and family history research?

* Select one piece of hardware (besides your computer),
* Select one piece of software (besides your internet browser),
* Select one web site/blog (besides your own)

that are indispensable to you. Resist the urge to dilute the impact of your 3 choices by mentioning several others you use and appreciate as well. This is an exercise in appraising the technology you use/recommend the most. The deadline for submissions is March 1st.
