10th Edition of the Carnival of Central and Eastern European Genealogy

This edition of the Carnival of Central and Eastern European Genealogy is the tenth edition, which is a milestone in itself. The topic for this edition was a carousel, so the topic of this edition's submission could be on anything. Five people submitted articles, and here are this edition's articles:

First off, we have an article from Amir Dekel of I Dream of Genea(logy), who is a first time submitter to this carnival. In Almost no oaks in my forest, Amir writes about the effect of the Holocaust on his grandfather's family, and the reason for his grandfather's emigration to Israel.

Next, we have an article from Elizabeth O'Neal of Little Bytes of Life. In Slavic Folklore for Kids: The Little Einsteins, she writes about a Disney's show that incorporates a Slavic folk story about a firebird into the episodes storyline.

Next, we have an article from Stephen J. Danko of Steve's Genealogy Blog. In Finding the Village of Trelkowo, Poland (Gross Schöndaerau, Germany), he writes about his attempt to find the village of Trelkowo and how he found the village. He also writes about the name change of this village after World War Two.

Next, we have an article from Al of Polish-American Genealogy Research. In Adeline Sopa Q & A Interview, he shares a transcript of his interview with Adeline Sopa, an expert Kashubian genealogy.

Last, but not least, we have an article from Jessica Oswalt of Jessica's Genejournal. In Looking For My German Ancestors Part 4, she writes about the research she did into Fred, the relative of her ancestor, Carl.

Well, that ends this edition of the Carnival of Central and Eastern European Genealogy. For the next edition, we have a bit of change. Instead of the edition being hosted on my blog, the edition will be hosted by Steve Danko. The topic, as suggested by him, will be on: "First (Given) Names: Did any of your ancestors have an unusual given name? Have you discovered the meanings behind the given names of your ancestors? Did your ancestors use any naming patterns for their children? Are there any given names that are particular common in your family history? Did any of your ancestors have given names that you particularly like or dislike? Does your family celebrate "Name Days"? Did your immigrant ancestors change their given names after they arrived in America? Tell us about the first (given) names in your family. You can concentrate on one name, a few names, or you can go wild and write about the first names of all your ancestors!" Submissions for the next edition are due on September 21, and the edition will be posted on September 24. You can submit your article here.
