Drop your last-minute shopping lists and head over to see the Carnival of Genealogy: 86th Edition – it’s a terrific holiday two-fer! There are so many wonderful articles in this 2-part edition that you’ll forget to come up for egg nog!

My submission for Part 1 is here: Advent Calendar: Day 15 – Holiday Happenings!

My part 2 submission is here: An Open Letter to Genea-Santa.

Were you too mired in the holiday craziness to play along this time? Don’t worry, there’s another COG coming up in 2 weeks:

The topic for the next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy will be: New Year’s Resolutions! This year is almost over and a new decade is knocking on the door. This is the perfect time to make your New Year resolutions, goals, aims, declarations, intentions, aspirations, objectives, plans, targets, schemes, wishes, or whatever you want to call them! Figure out how you’re going to approach your family history research next year, write it up, and share it with us in the COG. The deadline for submissions is January 1, 2010.

Many thanks to Jasia for compiling and hosting this amazing double-edition of the COG! And thanks to footnoteMaven for the beautiful posters.

Dislikes: people who copy stuff off the internet without giving credit, and county clerks who can't tell the difference between Eastern and Pacific time zones. Secretly hopes her daughter will one day develop an interest in family history (but no luck so far).
