In part I of the Carnival, you read the individual submissions to our theme of the ten most essential books in your genealogical library. Now, in part II, we will look at the results of our exercise.

Call For Submissions! The topic for the next edition of the COG will be: I read it in the news! Newspapers can be a wonderful source of family history information. Share some aspect about your family history that you learned about in a newspaper. Articles, advertisements, obituaries, classified ads, photos... all are fair game if they appeared in a newspaper. What did you learn about your family from this information? Was the information accurate? How did you learn about this information... online search? Perusing old newspapers? A clipping saved by a relative? Fill us in on your family scoops... who in your family was in the news? The deadline for submissions is October 1st. The next edition will be hosted at the Creative Gene blog.

To All COG Participants: Please use a descriptive phrase in the title of any articles you plan to submit and/or write a brief description/introduction to your articles in the "comment" box of the blogcarnival submission form. This will give readers an idea of what you've written about and hopefully interest them in clicking on your link. Introductions for your articles will not be provided for you due to the volume of articles submitted. Thank you!

such a wonderful list! Have to make sure I save it somewhere I won't forget about...

now if I could just find some time to get back to work on my own genealogical research! (Though I am possibly doing one of my term papers this semester on Polish-American music, so I get to have a bit of semi-genealogical related fun none the less!)

Terry Thornton said...

Lori, Thanks for the two-part report on COG56. What a labor of love --- thanks for going this extra mile and extracting all of the books. I know now which ones I need to add!

This was wonderful! And without question a tremendous amount of work.

Thank you for both parts, it was so interesting. I found some books I really NEED to buy.


Amy Coffin, MLIS said...

Thank you for doing this! I was unable to contribute due to a loooonnnnggg hurricane-related power outage. I am thrilled to see such a great list.

We're just glad you are back online and have power, Amy!
