Last week, I posted this post about finding new cousins and included my line back to Richard Treat. Yesterday, Julie Cahill Tarr of GenBlog posted Found Cousins that included her line back to our shared ancestor. So if you are curious just how we are related, go check out Julie’s post! Perhaps you too are one of our distant cousins!

I’ve been catching up on my genea-blog reading and trying to comment on those I’ve read. This is my list:
6. Life’s Journey on this post Japanese Cherry Trees around the Washington Tidal Basin (A new blog to me)
10. Genealogy Traces on this post Lucy Puckett and Cowart Children Die From 1918 Influenza (New to me blog)
So I urge to you go check out these blogs and the posts and please leave comments where ever you visit! Care to leave me a comment?
Yes, I’ve felt like I’ve taken a long commercial break! This week started out busy – last week! Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to be coherent enough to form any sort of thoughts to write about. I will return to posting (have I got a LOT to tell you!) soon.
I do want to thank Randy Seaver – I think he’s my new BFF! Randy’s Best of the Genea-Blogs Week of August 24th on his blog, Gene-Musings included not one but TWO of my posts from last week! He mentioned my Freaky Friday 4th Edition post from last week and my post on Dissecting Obituaries. As a result, I received many visitors yesterday – over 110! Thank you again, Randy! I hope I can reciprocate the Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness!
I also received 4 comments yesterday regarding my previous posting about my great-grandmother’s, nephew, Chase T. Noonan (The Case of Chase). Turns out Chase’s daughter, Ruth, ended up getting married and having a daughter! My new-found cousin contacted me, and I am hoping to correspond more with her soon. She hadn’t seen any of the photos I had, so I want to share everything I have learned with her.
And now back to your regular scheduled programming . . .
The theme for this Carnival is Carousel. All genealogy related topics were allowed. Please head over to Jasia’s Creative Gene Blog for the list. This time there are 39 Submissions! That is amazing and wonderful! Please read each submission and leave a comment so the submitter knows you have read their post and if it inspired you in any way – or just thank them for posting.
I’ve tried to read each submission for the last several posts except the 52nd Edition that posted when I was on vacation. I’m just not that caught up yet! I plan on spending a good chunk of time reading the current Edition!
Thanks, Jasia, for hosting this Carnival! The 54th Edition will be hosted by Donna Pointkouski at What’s Past is Prologue and will be on the topic of The Family Language. Submission deadline will be August 15th so put on your thinking caps and start writing!
