Scratch Your Research At The COG


97th EDITION OF THE Carnival Of Genealogy

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

Research From Scratch!

- ¤ -

Here's an opportunity to put on your research caps and
delve into a whole new family history.

- ¤ -

The challenge is to get some basic information about an ancestor
of a friend, neighbor, co-worker, etc. and put in 3-5 hours of
online research using whatever sources are available to you.

- ¤ -

Write up your research process including whatever
web sites/ blogs/ databases you access, what you learned,
and a synopsis of how far you were able to get.

- ¤ -

You do not have to reveal names. If the family of the ancestor
you are researching would prefer you keep your
findings private, please do so.

- ¤ -

You do not need to "make a case" with the evidence you find.
No one is grading you.

- ¤ -

This is just intended to be a fun exercise in researching beyond
our own family lines... you know how fun beginning
research is when you haven't hit a brick wall yet!

- ¤ - ¤ -

The Deadline For Submissions Is
September 1st
30 submissions accepted
