74th Edition of the Carnival of Genealogy Posted

COG 74

In case you haven’t heard the news, the 74th Edition of the Carnival of Genealogy – the Swimsuit Edition – has been posted over at Creative Gene.

With more than 30 posts from fellow geneabloggers, this edition covers all aspects of swimsuits and summer fun – even if some of the swimsuits shown don’t cover much at all!

And now for the next edition of COG:  Time for a change of pace. Call for Submissions! The COG topic for July 1 is “Justice and Independence ”. Since our beginnings as a nation, the United States of America has seen changes with every year, every decade, and every century. Each generation adds growth to our lives, our communities, and our nation. One thing that has never changed, however, is our desire for Justice for those who wrong us and Independence from those who try to oppress us. This month’s COG asks you to relate to these concepts of Justice and Independence in one or all of three ways: 1). Tell a story of an ancestor(s) who fought for freedom. 2). Tell a story about how Independence Day was celebrated by your ancestors. Did any of their celebratory traditions get passed down for your own family to continue? Or 3). Post the lyrics of a song that exemplifies how Justice and Independence have worked in the lives of your ancestors and/or family. Include photos! This edition of the COG will be hosted by Colleen at OMcHodoy(thanks Colleen!). Deadline for submissions is July 1.
