16th Edition of the Carnival of Central and Eastern European Genealogy

The sixteenth edition of the Carnival of Central and Eastern European Genealogy has arrived! The topic for this edition was a carousel, so the articles submitted could be about anything as long as they related to genealogy and Central and Eastern Europe in some way. So, what did fellow genea-bloggers write about? Well, here are the articles submitted:

First off, we have an article from a new submitter, John Newmark of Transylvanian Dutch. In the service of Franz Josef, he writes about his attempt to translate his great-grandfather's military records from the Austrian-Hungarian Empire.

Next, we have an article from Ambar, another new submitter, of Still More Genealogy. In Finding John Kohl (1840-1903), Ambar writes about hiring a pro genealogist to find out more information on his or her ancestor, John Kohl and where he came from in Germany.

Next, we have an article from Stephen Danko of Steve's Genealogy Blog. In Describing Place Names in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, he writes about providing descriptions for places in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth in one's genealogy.

Next, we have an article from Diane Rogers of CanadaGenealogy. In Some Canadian research sources - Carnival of Central and Eastern European Genealogy, she writes about a few Canadian records that might prove useful for a genealogist trying to trace his or her Central or Eastern European ancestors.

Last, but not least, we have two articles from Jessica Oswalt of Jessica's Genejournal. In Looking For My German Ancestors - Part 5 and Part 6, she continues writing about her research into her German ancestors and explores their connection to Cleveland, Ohio.

Well, that is it for this edition. The next edition will be hosted by Diane Rogers of CanadaGenealogy, and the topic for that edition will be on "Women in Central and Eastern European Genealogy. Have you a female ancestor from Eastern or Central Europe you'd like to highlight, or do you have tips specifically for researching women there, or have you found a good article, book or website that assists in historical research about women from Central and Eastern Europe? You don't have to have ancestors from Eastern or Central Europe to participate in this Carnival." The deadline for the submissions will be March 29th, and the edition will be published on the 31st. You can submit your article here.
