First Carnival of Genealogical Societies

There is a call for submissions in the first ever Carnival of Genealogical Societies. To participate, you just need to be part of a genealogy society that has a blog. [Correction: apparently anyone can participate as long as they stay on topic. Good news! Sorry for the confusion and thanks to Kathryn Doyle for the clarification.] If your genealogical society does not have a blog, this would be a great time to start one.

All of the details can be found at the California Genealogical Society blog. Ideas for blog topics and reasons for having a society blog are also available. Submissions are due March 7th.

Please spread the word to your local genealogical societies. I look forward to reading all of the entries.


  1. Thanks so much for helping to spread the word! Actually, anyone with a blog can participate - as long as they stay on topic. Maybe I need to go back and be sure I make that clear. I hope you will write about something from a society that has helped you along the way - even though you don't have a local society nearby. You have so many fantastic ideas, I wish you were close by!

  2. I'm looking forward to reading posts in that Carnival!

  3. Kathryn, thank you for the clarification. I made edits to my post so others are aware. I'm happy now because I get to join the carnival!
