The topic for the next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy is: Politics and Our Ancestors. The next edition of the COG will be published on Election Day in the U.S. (November 4). So it's the perfect time to research and reflect on what we know (or can find out) about our family members' involvement with the election process. Did one of your ancestors run for office? Who was President when your immigrant ancestors first set foot on American (Canadian, Australian, etc.) shores? What do you know about your grandparents' voting record? Which of your ancestors was first eligible to vote? Do you have any suffragettes on your family tree? What did the electoral process mean to your ancestors? Do you have a personal Election Day memory you'd like to share? Think about it, write about it, and submit it for the next COG! The deadline for submissions is November 1.
Submit your blog article to the next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy using our carnival submission form. Past posts and future hosts can be found on our blog carnival index page.

Eerie Facts or Spooky Fiction?
The 58th edition of the Carnival of Genealogy was a lot of fun and is now posted at Creative Gene. Which of the 22 entries were true and which were products of talented and creative writers? I can't wait to find out! Kathryn threw out a challenge at Looking4Ancestors to leave at least ten comments a week on blogs we read. I challenged myself to do this with the articles submitted to the CoG. This edition just invites comments so check them all out and let the authors know if you think they're fact or fiction.
