Thomas MacEntee of Destination: Austin Family begins our Carnival with his tribute to Frances Pressner - My German-American Great Grandmother. What a charming photograph - so hopeful both look, and both show a hint of humour. No doubt that shaped their lives together in North America.
In her Carnival contribution, Researching My Central and East European Female Ancestors, this Carnival's originator, Jessica Oswalt of Jessica's GeneJournal, highlights the variety of resources she's uncovered for her female ancestors who came from Germany and from ethnic German areas of the Russian Empire - from death records to deeds.
Brenda Dougall Merriman's Carnival article, Marija, gives us a fascinating peek into her Latvian grandmother's time working in St. Petersburg.
In my own contribution here at CanadaGenealogy, or, Jane's Your Aunt, Robitnytsia - A Source for Ukrainian Canadian Women's History, I discuss a few reasons ethnic and political publications like Robitnytsia are often neglected by family historians, and point to one solution.
And lastly at Tangled Trees, we learn about Theresa Stosz of Segenthau, Romania, surely an inspiration to all of us who are researching our families, particularly our female relatives. What good advice she gave and how well she taught it!
Thank you everyone for participating and for making my first time as a guest host for this Carnival so enjoyable. Everyone will appreciate reading your contributions. And thank you to Jessica for inviting me to participate as a host this time.
