4th Edition of the Carnival of Central and Eastern European Genealogy

The fourth edition of the Carnival of Central and Eastern European Genealogy is now here! The topic for this carnival was a carousel, so articles on any topic that was related to Central and Eastern Europe was accepted. I had several articles submitted, and I believe this is largest edition of the carnival as of date. So read on:

First off, we have three articles from Lisa of 100 Years in America. The first article is An Eastern European Celebration in Pittsburgh. In this article, Lisa writes about the FEEFHS conference that will be held in Pittsburgh in early August of this year.

The next article from Lisa is Back and Forth Across the Kingdom of Hungary. In this article, Lisa writes about the Radix Log - Hungarian Genealogy Blog, and the useful links for Hungarian genealogy that a genealogist can find on that site.

The last article from Lisa is Crossing Borders and Language Barriers. In this article, Lisa writes about the difficulty she has in researching on her ancestors in Hungarian and Croatian language records.

Next, we have an article from Miriam of AnceStories: The Stories of My Ancestors. In 11. The Railroad Front, Miriam writes about the conditions her great-grandfather and fellow soldiers experienced in the 1918-1919 military expedition in Russia.

Next, we have two articles from Stephen Danko of Steve's Genealogy Blog. In The Website of the Plock Diocese, Steve writes about the information one could find about church records and priests in the Plock Diocese in Poland.

The last article we have from Steve is Abstracts of Presentations. This article was posted was posted on the United Polish Genealogical Societies blog, and the article contains abstracts of presentations that will be presented at the 2008 Conference in Salt Lake City, Utah in April.

Next, we have an article from Donna of What's Past is Prologue. In Polish Names and Feast Days, Donna writes about the Polish tradition of naming children after the Saint of the closest feast day.

Last, but not least, we have News From Eastern Europe ... from Jessica of Jessica's Genejournal. In this article, Jessica briefly writes about the recent events that occured in Kosovo and includes a link to a news article about these recent events.

And so that ends this edition of the Carnival of Central and Eastern European Genealogy. The topic for the next carnival will be on the traditional dishes of our ancestors from Central and Eastern Europe. The deadline for the next edition of the carnival will be March 21.
