51st Carnival of Genealogy is Posted - Independent Spirits!

Thomas MacEntee has posted the 51st Edition of the Carnival of Genealogy on his Destination: Austin Family blog. The topic for this edition was Independent Spirits, and there are articles highlighting really special people in the ancestry or lives of 22 genealogy bloggers. Great job, Thomas, and all of the bloggers!

My own submission was Martin Carringer (1758-1835), an Independent Spirit.

The topic for the next Carnival of Genealogy will be:

AGE: As family historians, we take time to carefully mark the birthdates of our forebearers. We print out family tree charts including this all-important data. We make it a point to note at what age family members have married, had children and passed away.

Take some time to look over the data that you have collected on members of your family tree, and share a story of age with us for the upcoming edition of the carnival. Do you have a member of the family who went to work to support the family while still of a tender age? Someone who accomplished something that was typically done by others beyond his or her years? A couple who married young? A couple with disparate ages? A family member who accomplished something of note at an advanced age? How about family members that lived many years, outlasting many of their relatives and friends?

With the understanding that "age is often a state of mind," share your family story about someone whose story stands out because of their age, either young or old.

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

Lisa at 100 Years in America will be the hostess for the 52nd Carnival -- the deadline for submissions is July 15th.
