Carnival of Genealogy

The 46th Carnival of Genealogy has been posted, everyone writing about their family traits. I noticed a few that dealt with diseases that run in the family. I'd considered mentioning again the colon cancer that I'd blogged about back in January, but decided to focus on happier traits. Though the message of getting yourself tested if you know there is a family history is one that can bear repetition.
The topic for the next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy is: A Place Called Home. It's time for a geography lesson. Pick out a city/town/village where one of your ancestors once lived and tell us all about it. When was it founded? What is it known for? Has it prospered or declined over the years? Have you ever visited it or lived there? To a certain extent, we are all influenced by the environment we live in. How was your ancestor influenced by the area where they lived? Take us on a trip to the place your ancestor called home. The deadline for submissions is May 1, 2008.
