Jasia at Creative Gene has posted the 42nd edition of the Carnival of Genealogy. This edition’s topic was: the best of the best…presenting the iGene Awards 2007! Submitters announced their best blog posts in the following 5 categories:
- Best Picture
- Best Screen Play
- Best Documentary
- Best Biography
- Best Comedy
Read about all of the submissions in Jasia’s post here. Unfortunately, I didn’t submit anything this time…I didn’t think I had a broad enough base of posts to choose from since I’ve only been blogging for about six weeks. There’s no sense choosing one as “the best” if I only have one post the meets the category’s description! But, I think it was a fantastic idea. What I’m most impressed by out of all of the awards is everyone’s “Best Biography”. I’ve gotten some fine ideas on how to piece together an ancestor’s bio when you really don’t know too much about the person! Enjoy these posts — they truly are the best of the BEST!
The topic for the next edition of the Carnival is: Technology. What technology do you most rely on for your genealogy and family history research? Select one piece of hardware (besides your computer), one piece of software (besides your internet browser), and one web site/blog (besides your own) that are indispensable to you. Resist the urge to dilute the impact of your 3 choices by mentioning several others you use and appreciate as well. This is an exercise in appraising the technology you use/recommend the most. The deadline for submissions is March 1st.
