The topic for the 89th Carnival was a pleasant surprise for me.
The topic for the next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy will be: Ode to My Family's History! This time around we'll be composing a poem that tells our family's history. It can be long or short, rhyme or not rhyme, funny or serious, illustrated or not... you choose, but make it appropriate as an introduction for a book or video on your family history. The challenge is on! The deadline for submissions is February 1st, 30 submissions accepted. [more info]I could take the easy path, and post a poem I've already written. No one would know the difference (except for the few people who read this blog that are also members of my writer's group, and who might remember the poem I chose.)
However, I suspect even if this is a popular edition, I will have enough time to compose something new. Besides, the poem I've written that would best serve as an introduction for a book of family history has already been posted to this blog, and graces the sidebar if you scroll down far enough. It's time to write something new.
