The 84th edition of the Carnival of Genealogy has been posted! You can read it here. The topic for the next edition will be on "'Orphans and Orphans.' The first type of orphan refers to those ancestors or relatives who lost their parents when they were young. The second type of orphan would be those siblings or cousins of our ancestors whom we think of as “reverse orphans.” They are the relatives who, for whatever reason – death at a young age, never having married or had children, or having children who did not survive to provide descendants – have no direct descendants of their own, so it falls to us, their collateral relatives, to learn and write their story. Greta will be the host this time around." Enjoy!
(Although I did not submit a post to this edition, I really wanted to do so. I've been busy with school work for awhile, and thus, I haven't been able to write as much as I wanted. I've submitted a total of 35 articles to the Carnival of Genealogy. Of course, I could be incorrect about that number, even though I went through my blog's archives.)
