Vita brevis; genealogia longa

The 23rd edition of the Carnival of Central and Eastern European Genealogy

Today, I have the honor of presenting eleven posts by seven different authors. We have tales and photographs, stories and research. Without more ado, ladies and gentlemen, let the 23rd edition of the Carnival of Central and Eastern European Genealogy commence!

Donna Pointkouski follows the tangled threads of cluster genealogy in The Millers’ Tale at What’s Past is Prologue. Don’t miss parts two and three.

At Tangled Trees, TCasteel tells us about the RMS Ausonia, the ship on which one of her ancestors came from Hungary to Canada. In Kirchweih, she shares a beautiful photograph of her ancestors in traditional costume for this church dedication festival.

Al Wierzba of Al’s Polish-American Genealogy Research is planning an ambitious indexing project involving the Portage County, Wisconsin Polish/Kaszubian community, and would love help from anyone else interested in this group. He has started by creating a template to assist the indexers.

Patti Browning, writing at Consanguinity, shares memories and wistfulness in the beautifully written All My Germans.

Earline Bradt discusses My Silver Buckle, and the nature of family heirlooms, at Ancestral Notes.

Evelyn Yvonne Theriault opens a dusty vault of Canadian history to us in The "Secret" Germans of Quebec at A Canadian Family.

And finally, M. Diane Rogers shows and tells us of the Ukrainian Pioneer Monument in Winnipeg Manitoba, posted at CanadaGenealogy, or, ‘Jane’s Your Aunt’

Thank you all for attending! The 24th Edition will be hosted by Al Wierzba of Al’s Polish-American Genealogy Research in November. Stay tuned for the details.

    Um, hey there. I am a proud Czech-descended person, and this summer I wrote about what my heritage means to me in the context of my social justice writing and work. Maybe some of you would be interested.
