Bricks As Well As Brick Walls

Do you recognize that "Can Do" women in the 44th Edition of the Carnival of Genealogy poster? Well, if you do, Jasia (Queen of the Carnival) wants you to tell us about her. Was she a woman on your family tree, a friend, a neighbor, or a historical female figure who has done something to impact your life? Submit your tribute to the COG, we'd all love to hear her story.

March is National Women's History Month and International Women's Day is celebrated March 8th. Now is the perfect time to pay homage to those women ancestors who are bricks as well as brick walls.

You may write a tribute, share a photo biography, create a scrapbook page, or come up with your own unique tribute to that woman. For extra credit, sum up her life in a six-word biography ala Lisa Alzo.

Also, check out Jasia's post "FAQs About The Carnival of Genealogy," for all you need to know about submitting a post. First-timers always welcome and greatly appreciated!

Submit your blog article to the next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy using the carnival submission form or select the 44th Edition COG poster in the upper right hand corner of this page. The deadline for submissions is March 15th, 2008. Past posts and future hosts can be found on the blog carnival index page.

You were the reason I started blogging. You were then and always will be my inspiration. I do it as a tribute to you.

You have always been there as my support system and my friend.

Making the COG a rip roaring success benefits our entire community of Geneabloggers. I love the COG.

The fact that I can find these pictures means I spend far too much time looking!

Hugs!

I've got an idea of who to write about for this one. I just need time to sit down and think about it :)

I wrote my entry this morning, I was so excited about it. I didn't post it yet, as I want the suspense to build (though I'm not sure *I* can stand the suspense)!
