The 74th edition of the Carnival of Genealogy is up over at Jasia's Creative
Gene blog. This was the 2nd Swimsuit Edition and 32 geneabloggers
responded with great stories and photos of family fun at the beach!

(I sat this one out. We didn't take many beach pictures when I was a kid
and I'd already written about Houghs Neck where most of the beach trips
took place.)

The next CoG will be the 78th (!) and here is the call for submissions:

"Time for a change of pace. Call for Submissions! The COG topic for July 1
is “Justice and Independence ”. Since our beginnings as a nation, the United
States of America has seen changes with every year, every decade, and every
century. Each generation adds growth to our lives, our communities, and our
nation. One thing that has never changed, however, is our desire for Justice
for those who wrong us and Independence from those who try to oppress us.
This month’s COG asks you to relate to these concepts of Justice and Independence
in one or all of three ways: 1). Tell a story of an ancestor(s) who fought for freedom.
2). Tell a story about how Independence Day was celebrated by your ancestors. Did
any of their celebratory traditions get passed down for your own family to continue?
Or 3). Post the lyrics of a song that exemplifies how Justice and Independence have
worked in the lives of your ancestors and/or family. Include photos! This edition
of the COG will be hosted by Colleen at OMcHodoy (thanks Colleen!). Deadline for
submissions is July 1.

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."

I'll definitely be participating in the next CoG. If you haven't done so yet, you
should! It's a great way to become part of the geneablogger community!
