“Orphans and Orphans”

85th EDITION OF THE Carnival Of Genealogy

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

“Orphans and Orphans”

- ¤ -

The first type of orphan refers to those ancestors or relatives
who lost their parents when they were young.

- ¤ -

The second type of orphan would be those siblings or cousins
of our ancestors whom we think of as “reverse orphans.”

- ¤ -

They are the relatives who, for whatever reason – death at a young age,
never having married or had children, or having children
who did not survive to provide descendants

- ¤ -

They have no direct descendants of their own, so it falls to us,
their collateral relatives, to learn and write their story
