Call for articles - Genealogy Stories, Holiday edition

The pursuit of genealogy is all about finding and telling family stories.  There is quite a bit more to the family story than just dates and places.  Let's hear some of the stories that have been told around the dinner table or that have come up in our research.  Dates and places by all means can be included, but they shouldn't be the main focus of the story submitted for the carnival.

As this carnival will be posted on November 30, just after Thanksgiving in the U.S. and leading into the winter holidays, the theme of this carnival will be "Holiday."  This theme can be interpreted in a number of ways; here are some ideas to get you started:
  • Tell us a story about the most memorable holiday celebration you've had.
  • Are there any unique holiday traditions in your family history?
  • What does a specific holiday mean to your family?
  • Share a picture from a holiday celebration and tell us about it.
  • Find someone in your ancestral lines who was born, married or died on a holiday and tell us the story of that person(s).
  • You could even use the British definition of the term "holiday" and tell us about a memorable vacation.
Once you've written your post, submit it to the carnival to participate.

Let's have fun with this.
