The COG Invites Disaster!

79th Edition of The COG

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


- ¤ -

As human beings, our very existence is proof of the survival skills, faith, or just plain luck our ancestors possessed in order to persevere through millenia of disasters: epidemics, wars, pestilences, famines, accidents, and acts of nature.

- ¤ -

Tell about a disaster that one or more of your ancestors lived through.

- ¤ -

Did they survive a hurricane, flood, tornado, train wreck, sinking ship, plague, genocide, explosion, mine collapse, or some other terrible event?

- ¤ -

How did they survive?

- ¤ -

Research the details of the disaster and explain how it affected your ancestor (guilt, fear, faith, gratitude, etc.), your family's history, and even yourself!
