I'm currently being made miserable by a head and chest cold, but I
am not so discombobulated as to not mention here that the 57th
Edition of the Carnival of Genealogy is up over at Jasia's Creative Gene
blog. There's over forty contributors of posts concerning what they have
learned about their ancestors from newspapers and the ones I've read
already are great. I plan to look at the others perhaps tomorrow night
if my head and nose allow it.

The next CoG should be fun and a challenge:

"And now it's time for a Call For Submissions! The topic for the next edition of the COG will be: Halloween Hauntings... Fact or Fiction? We're going to have some fun with the Carnival of Genealogy this time around. Halloween is coming up in a few weeks. In keeping with the spirit of the season, write a story about or including one of your ancestors. It can be fact or fiction. Don't tell which it is (until after October 15 when the COG is published), let your readers guess. We should all get some great comments as readers try to determine if our Halloween genea-story is fact or fiction! Was your ggg grandmother a witch? Did you live in a haunted house when you were growing up? Were there bats in Aunt Betty's belfry? Did you ever meet up with a ghost when you were looking for an ancestor's grave? See if you can stump us! The deadline for submissions is October 15th.

Write up your eerie tales and submit them to the next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy using our carnival submission form."

I'll have to do some digging around (cough) in the family vault for that

But now, I'm off to take my Anti-Discombobulation Spray and then on
to bed.
