29th Edition of the Carnival of Central and Eastern European Genealogy

Welcome to the 29th Edition of the Carnival of Central and Eastern European Genealogy!

It's all about religion this time. Articles about religion as part of the life of an ancestor, sources about an ancestor that are connected to their religion, basically anything to do with religion.

The carnival kicks off at Ancestor Soup with the article Doing God's Work on the Prairie. "Nestled between cornfields southwest of Freeport, Illinois, sits a lasting reminder that Harriet Van Brocklin was there, and that she had faith."

The next stop is at The Internet Genealogist who brings us the article A Man on a Mission. "I often forget how big a role religion must have played in my ancestors lives, though only a little digging usually reveals their spiritual leanings (which I think says a lot for how important it must have been to them)."

Al's Polish-American Genealogy Research is the location of the next article Parish Communities. "One constant in all of my genealogy and historical research has been the importance of religion to my Polish ancestors."

Al is also hosting the next edition of the carnival. The theme is "Arrival in New Lands" dealing with the who, where, and why our ancestors may have left their homelands and settled in new countries. Submissions will be due on June 27th, and he will post the edition on June 30th. You can submit an article here.

  1. Shoot - I got side tracked with 'life' and didn't get my post done in time! Thank you for hosting the carnival.
