57th Carnival of Genealogy has been posted

The 57th Carnival of Genealogy has been posted. Almost four dozen entries about family history discovered in newspapers.

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.
Sounds like a fun challenge.

Note: Recently I redesigned my blog here, and added a widget from the CoG that contains quicklinks to past carnivals, and the submission page. It's on the far-right sidebar underneath the list of categories.
