“Justice and Independence” Call On The COG

75th Edition of The COG

The topic for the next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy is:

“Justice and Independence”

Since our beginnings as a nation, the United States of America has seen changes with every year, every decade, and every century. Each generation adds growth to our lives, our communities, and our nation. One thing that has never changed, however, is our desire for Justice for those who wrong us and Independence from those who try to oppress us.

- ¤ -

This month’s COG asks you to relate to these concepts
of Justice and Independence in one or all of three ways:

- ¤ -

1. Tell a story of an ancestor(s) who fought for freedom.

- ¤ -

2. Tell a story about how Independence Day was celebrated by your ancestors.
Did any of their celebratory traditions get passed down for your own family to continue?

- ¤ -

3. Post the lyrics of a song that exemplifies how Justice and Independence
have worked in the lives of your ancestors and/or family. Include photos!
