26th Edition of the Carnival of Central and Eastern European Genealogy

Welcome to the 26th edition of the Carnival of Central and Eastern European Genealogy! The topic for this edition was a carousel - the articles could be on any topic. Several articles were submitted, and here are the articles for this edition:

First off, we have an article from T. Casteel of Tangled Trees. In The Village Church of Segenthau, Casteel gives a brief overview of the Catholic Church in Segenthau, Romania.

Next, we have an article from John Frank of Ancestry Chronicles. In The Soviet Takeover of Hungary: a Tale of Tragedy, he writes about the forced removal of ethnic Germans from their homes in Eastern Europe after World War Two.

Next, we have an article from Al Wierzba of Polish-American Genealogy Research. In Waiting For The Mail - Parish CD's, he writes about ordering parish records from a contact in Poland.

Next, we have an article from Antra of Discovering Latvian Roots. In Myths About Latvian Research, Antra writes about a few common myths in Latvian genealogy research and the reality behind those myths.

Next, we have an article from Diane Rogers of CanadaGenealogy or 'Jane's Your Aunt'. In Immigrants in Canada's West - 1898 - Carnival of Central and Eastern European Genealogy, she transcribes a newspaper article that gives immigration statistics for Western Canada in the year 1898.

Next, we have an article from Zenon of Polish Origins. In Polish Genealogy Databases, Zenon provides a link for Polish genealogy databases that can be searched online.

Last, but not least, we have an article from Jessica Oswalt of Jessica's Genejournal. In Looking For My German Ancestors, Part 8, she writes about her discovery of a Declaration of Intent for one of her ancestors.

Well, that is it for this edition. The topic for the next edition is on "'The Village of my Ancestor'. Each article should deal with any known history of any location that one ancestor may have lived. It could be history of a town or area in the U.S. or an European Village," and will be hosted by Al of Polish-American Genealogy Research. The deadline for submissions will be March 19th, and the edition will be published on March 22nd. You can submit your articles here. Enjoy!
