44th Carnival of Genealogy - All About Women!

The 44th Carnival of Genealogy was posted yesterday by Jasia at the Creative Gene blog - the topic was: A Tribute to Women. March is Nation Women's History Month so we are taking this opportunity to pay tribute to women who have made an impact on our lives.

32 genealogy bloggers contributed one or more stories to this archive - there are many excellent posts - please go read all of them and marvel at the diversity, skill, gumption and love of our favorite females. My contribution was Abigail A. (Vaux) Smith - my great-great-grandmother who was the one who traveled across the country between 1858 and 1890 from New York to San Diego.

The next Carnival of Genealogy topic will be: Cars as stars! Next to purchasing a house, a "new set of wheels" was the next most significant purchase for many families. What car played a starring roll in your family history and what roll did it play? Did your family build cars or tinker with them? Did they take "Sunday drives"? What was your first car? Was there a hangout that you frequented in your car? How far back can you document your family's automotive genealogy? Tell us your car stories... front seat or back! ;-) Vroom, Vroom! The deadline for submissions is April 1st.

Submit your blog article to the next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy using our carnival submission form. Past posts and future hosts can be found on our blog carnival index page.
