20th Edition of the Carnival of Central and Eastern European Genealogy

Welcome to the 20th edition of the Carnival of Central and Eastern European Genealogy! The topic for this edition was a carousel, and that means that submitted articles could be on anything as long as they related to Central or Eastern Europe and genealogy. Although this edition is a small one, there are interesting articles in this edition. Here are the articles for this edition:

First off, we have two articles from Al of Polish-American Genealogy Research. In Index of Indexes, he writes about a website that lists indexing projects that are occurring Poland, and in Indexing Project - Geneteka Part One, he writes about how one can use the Polish website mentioned to research your ancestors.

Next, we have an article from Jen Bawden of Hills Hollows Valleys Plains, a first-time submitter. In Germany is Germane to the Situation?, she writes about how she had difficulty researching her German ancestors until she discovered a notebook that was compiled by her mother.

Last, but not least, we have an article from Jessica Oswalt of Jessica's Genejournal. In Looking For My German Ancestors, Part 7, she continues to write about her research into Anna's family.

Well, that is it for this edition. The next edition will be hosted by Thomas of Destination: Austin Family. The topic for that edition, as suggested by Thomas, will be on "How did your ancestors celebrate the glorious season of summer both back home in Europe and here in America? Did they need to make adjustments once here in America since the weather was different? Or summer customs were different? Include memories, photos, recipes – anything that helps tell summertime stories." The deadline for that edition will be July 20th, and the edition will be published on July 25th. You can submit your articles here.

As a side note, I am still looking for hosts these future months:
  • August
  • October
  • November
  • December

If you are interested in hosting the August edition, please contact me at jess_history at yahoo dot com by July 18. Thanks!
