The 59th Edition of the Carnival of Genealogy, "Politics and Our Ancestors! " is up now at the Creative Gene blog. Lots of interesting articles this issue - Janet Iles at her blog, Janet the Researcher, for instance, reports on an early Canadian election in 1832. No privacy policies then!
And, if you had relatives in British Columbia, Canada in the early 1950's, be sure to have a look at my submission. (You might find a name you recognize, from an unconventional source.)
