Politics and Our Ancestors!


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!

Thanks for the promo, fM! The new poster looks terrific! I don't know how in the world you come up with one great poster after another. You are the queen of poster making!
