Carnival of Genealogy #104 iGene Awards

Call for Submissions! The topic for the 114th edition of the Carnival of Genealogy is: The 5th Annual iGene Awards! For those not familiar with the iGene Awards, you can see the previous years here, here, here, and here. We'll announce our best blog posts from the previous year (in this case, 2011) in the following 5 categories: Best Picture (that would be a photograph), Best Screen Play (story you would make into a movie including the cast), Best Documentary (investigative research), Best Biography, Best Comedy. Write up a blog post with links to your best articles in these categories and submit it to the COG! Feel free to use the iGene graphic if you'd like. The deadline for submissions is February 1st.

This is my second iGene Awards, the first one was here.

Best Picture Well I did a lot of pictures last year, so this one was real hard to pick, but this one is one of the most visited also, so check out my 2011 Swimsuit issue.

Best Screen Play Well these groups of posts on the 1962 Seattle Worlds Fair would make a good Screen Play, maybe starring Elvis. No wait he already did a movie at the 1962 Seattle Worlds fair.

Best Documentary Well this article is my best sleuthing. Found this certificate behind the certificate in the frame that holds my parents Marriage Certificate in my parents bedroom.

Best Biography Really did not do any biographies this year so I will skip this one this year.

Best Comedy This post has the pictures of where we stopped the night after the WSGS Conference in Richland this year. Why is it funny? We were looking for a quiet place to sleep and stopped at a rest stop. I knew there was a railroad track close, but could not find it in the dark. Check it out here.


  1. Good choices all, Charles! Thanks for participating in the COG. :-)

  2. The rest stop looks like it had good scenery even if it was on top of a train tunnel.

  3. Never heard a train either, so nice and quiet.
