Confirm or Debunk: Family Myths, Legends, and Lore will be the topic for the next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy to be hosted by Craig Manson at GeneaBlogie.
Family myths or legends are those widely circulated yet unconfirmed stories that may range from the origin of an ancestor to more complex lore. Everyone who looks into family backgrounds, however we label them, sooner or later comes across the truth or untruth of these myths or legends. What does one do when confronted with evidence contrary to a long-standing family legend? What are some of the legends that the participants have confirmed or debunked or would like to confirm? How did family react to the discovery of the real story? Maybe the real story was even better than the myth? The deadline for submissions is September 1st. Submit your blog article for the next edition using the carnival submission form . Past posts and future hosts can be found on the blog carnival index page.
