The 41st Carnival of Genealogy is out over at Jasia’s Creative
. This one is on the topic of which four ancestors would
you like to have dinner with and asks questions about what
you’d eat, what you’d discuss, and other details of what would
be a momentous occasion for anyone tracing their family
history. The number of contributors is large and the quality
of their posts is as ever high!

Then Jasia issued a call for the 42 CoG:

“The topic for the next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy
will be: The Best of The Best! It's Academy awards time...
time for the Academy of Genealogy and Family History aka
AGFH (an esteemed organization that all genea-historian
bloggers who participate in this next edition of the COG will
become founding members of) to honor their best blog posts
of 2007* in the following 5 categories:

Best Picture - Best old family photo that appeared on
your blog in 2007. Tell us which you liked best and why.

Best Screen Play - Which family story that you shared in
would make the best movie? Who would you cast as
family members?

Best Documentary - Which was the best informational
you wrote about a place, thing, or event involving
family's history in 2007?

Best Biography - Which was the best biographical article
wrote in 2007?

Best Comedy - Which was the best funny story, poem, joke,
photo, or video that you shared on your blog in 2007?

*We're going to define "2007" to include any posts written
2007 as well as those written Jan. 1-Feb. 15, 2008 as
well (so
that new bloggers can participate).”

So bring out your best and share them with us!

Even better news: footnoteMaven, who suggested the dinner
with ancestors topic for this latest CoG, has been absent from
the genealogy blogging scene for the past few weeks is
recovering, and was able to write a new post on her blog.

Welcome back, ftm! Keep getting better!
