Smile for the Carnivals!

I’ve been remiss in not calling attention earlier in the week to two Carnivals I really enjoyed!  The 66th Edition of the Carnival of Genealogy is posted here at Creative Gene.  It’s the second annual IGene Awards where genea-bloggers showcase their best work of the prior year.    You’ll find some great stuff  there!

And footnoteMaven hosted the 10th Edition of Smile for the Camera–A Carnival of Images at Shades of  the Departed.  The topic is “Costume. ”  As The Collector herself says:

It was the most wonderful fashion show I’ve ever attended. From the everyday costume to the oh so special occasion, they all attended the Carnival. You really have outdone yourselves. So sit back and enjoy, open the cover and browse the 10th Edition of Smile For The Camera’s album of costume! You’re going to love this one!It was the most wonderful fashion show I’ve ever attended.

Calls for Submissions!
The topic for the next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy will be: “Nobody’s Fool” – who in your family was known to have the best common sense, the best sage advice and basically just “kept it together” all the time? Let’s hear about them! The next edition will be hosted by Thomas MacEntee at Destination: Austin Family.  The deadline for submissions is March 1.

Submit your blog article to the next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy using the  carnival submission form. Please use a descriptive phrase in the title of any articles you plan to submit and/or write a brief description/introduction to your articles in the “comment” box of the blogcarnival submission form. This will give readers an idea of what you’ve written about and hopefully interest them in clicking on your link. Thank you!

Past posts and future hosts can be found on the  blog carnival index page.

The word prompt for the 11th Edition of Smile For The Camera is Brothers & Sisters. Were they battling brothers, shy little sisters, or was it brother & sister against the world? Our ancestors often had only their siblings for company. Were they best friends or not? Show us that picture that you found with your family photographs or in your collection that shows your rendition of brothers & sisters. Bring them to the carnival and share. Admission is free with every photograph!

Your submission may include as many or as few words as you feel are necessary to describe your treasured photograph. Those words may be in the form of an expressive comment, a quote, a journal entry, a poem (your own or a favorite), a scrapbook page, or a heartfelt article. The choice is yours!
Deadline for submissions is midnight (Pacific Time), 10 March 2009.  Posted on 15 March 2009.
There are two options:

1. Send an email to the host, footnoteMaven. Include the title and permalink URL of the post you are submitting, your name, and the name of your blog. Put ‘Smile For The Camera’ clearly in the title of your email!
