Thanks to Denise Barrett Olson's post, More Blog Notice, at Family Matters I discovered that, Discovering Family History has a list of 15 Genealogy Blogs You Need to Read. Congratualtions to Denise and the other 14 blogs mentioned!

Carnivals and Roundups

Jasia hosted the the 91st Edition of the Carnival of Genealogy at Creative Gene. The topic for this edition was "Women's History Month: Write a biography about a woman on your family tree starting with a timeline of their life." There were 21 excellent submissions and I am honored that my submission was chosen as the Featured Article! The topic for the next edition is Dance and submissions are due by April 1st.

The 7th edition of A Festival of Postcards was hosted by Evelyn Yvonne Theriault at A Canadian Family. The theme was "Light" and it was interesting to see the various ways in which that was interperted by various bloggers. The theme for the next edition is Geography and submissions are due by April 28th.

The March Issue of Shades Of The Departed Magazine is available at Shades of the Departed. The the photographs were beautiful and the articles great this month. I particularly liked Denise Barrett Olson's, The Future of Memories.

The Carnival of Irish Heritage and Culture celebrated St Patrick's day with the 3rd annual St. Patrick's Day Parade hosted by Lisa at Small-leaved Shamrock. There were a wide range of topics celebrating Irish genealogy, hertitage faith and of course, St. Patrick. The topic for the next edition is Irish Poetry and submissions are due by April 26th.

The Premier Edition of the Carnival of African-American Genealogy was hosted by Luckie Daniels at Our Georgia Roots. The topic was Restore My Name, dealing with the sharing and publication of slave records. The topic for the next edition is Grandma's Hand with submissions due by April 12th.

My Week

Spring has finally arrived in Snowville! This is the earliest I have ever had crocuses here! I've been out without a jacket and my husband has begun shoveling the garden beds that are still snowbound. I've only had time to get one garden bed cleaned up with lots left to do.

I had an incredibly busy week, kid's night here, Mike had a band concert. a garden club meeting and I worked a bus safety event. Throw in a couple of meetings, a flat tire and a trip to the doctor with Mom and I'm happy the week is over!
