Of course, it concludes with the call for submissions to the 74th edition:

"And now it's time for a Call for Submissions! Back by popular demand,
the topic for the next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy will be: Swimsuit
Edition! Why should Sports Illustrated have all the fun? This is your chance
to show off the bathing beauties in your family. Pull out the old photos of
Grandma Moses in her seaside bloomers, Auntie Mae in her pin-up girl suit
from the 1940s or 50s, cousin Paula in her psychedelic bikini from the 1970s,
or even yourself in your Speedo! Let's have some fun here! Memorial
Weekend is behind us and that means the start of the summer sun, sand,
and lakeside season so let's get in the mood with summer fun photos. What?
You don't have any swimsuit photos you dare to share? No problem! Tell us
your best family beach stories instead! The deadline for submissions is
June 15th. This edition of the COG will be hosted by Jasia at Creative Gene.

Submit your blog article to the next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy using
the carnival submission form. Please use a descriptive phrase in the title of any
articles you plan to submit and/or write a brief description/introduction to
your articles in the "comment" box of the blogcarnival submission form. This
will give readers an idea of what you've written about and hopefully interest
them in clicking on your link. Past posts and future hosts can be found on our
blog carnival index page."

While we're on the subject of the CoG, the 73rd Edition was published in time to
celebrate its third anniversary. Congratulations, Jasia, and here's to many more
years of enjoyment from the Carnival of Genealogy!
