6th Edition of the Carnival of Central and Eastern European Genealogy

The sixth edition of the Carnival of Central and Eastern European Genealogy is here! The topic for this carnival was a carousel, so any article relating to Central and Eastern Europe was welcome. This edition will be short as I have only received a few entries for this edition. So, here is this edition:

First off, we have an article from Steve Danko of Steve's Genealogy Blog. In The Polish Village of Dylagowa, Steve writes about the village that his paternal grandparents were from.

Next we have an article from Lisa of 100 Years in America. In A Thousand Words and A Few Pictures, Lisa writes about the frustration she has in reading books on places her ancestors from since they are in languages that she does not read.

Next, we have an article from a new contributor, Saifuddin of Saifuddin. In The Character of the Ottomans, Saifuddin writes about the government of the Ottomans. I think many people forget how much of a role that the Ottoman Empire had in the history of Eastern Europe.

Last but not least, we have an article from Jessica of Jessica's Genejournal. In A History of Hungary ..., Jessica writes a review of a book on an overview of the history of Hungary that is in the English language.

Well, that is it for this edition. The topic for the next edition, in honor of Mother's Day, will be on a female ancestor from Central and/or Eastern Europe. The deadline for the next edition will be May 19th. The edition will be posted on the 20th. You can submit your entries here.
