54th Carnival of Genealogy posted - on Family Language

Donna Pointkouski has posted the 54th Edition of the Carnival of Genealogy on her blog, What's Past Is Prologue. The topic for this edition was The Family Language - and what a wonderful variety of languages we all have.

29 bloggers contributed to this tower of Babel - I encourage you to go read every one of them. Some are funny, all are informative. My own contribution was San Diego Slanguage - I picked the local -isms because I didn't have many memories of unique family language curiosities.

The topic for the next Carnival of Genealogy will be Show and Tell! Remember that fun little exercise you used to do in your grade school days? Here’s your chance to do it again Show us and tell us about an heirloom, a special photo, a valuable document, or a significant person that is a very special part of your family history. Don’t be shy now, show us what you’ve got! This is all about bragging rights so don’t hesitate to make the rest of us green with envy! This is your chance to brag, brag, brag, without seeming like a braggart (you can’t be a braggart when you’re merely following directions ;-)… so show and tell!

This next edition will be hosted by Jasia on the Creative Gene blog. The deadline for submissions will be September 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. See ya next time!
