FINAL DEADLINE REMINDER FOR THE GREAT GENEALOGY POETRY CHALLENGE.

There's only two days left to submit a blogpost for Eighth Annual Great Genealogy Poetry
Challenge. The deadline is November 17th!

These are the Challenge rules:

1. Find a poem by a  poet, famous or obscure, about the region
one of your ancestors lived in. It can be about an historical event, a
legend, a person, or even about some place (like a river)or a local
animal. It can even be a poem you or one of your ancestors have written.
0r, if you prefer, post the lyrics of a song or a link to a video of someone
performing the song.

2. Post the poem or song to your blog (remembering to cite the source
where you found it.).  If you wish to enter an older post, you may as long
as it has not appeared here in an earlier Poetry Challenge.

 3.Tell us how the subject of the poem or song relates to your ancestor's
home or life, or the area of the country where they lived.

4.Submit your post's link here to me by midnight Thursday, November 17th
and I'll publish all links to the entries on Thanksgiving Day, November 24th!

If  you submit a humorous poem or song that will be entered under the
"Willy Puckerbrush" division. Willy was the late geneablogger Terry
Thornton's alias for some humorous posts and comments.

Bill, I love this challenge. I wrote mine back in October, hoping you saved the URL to it!
