Best of the Genea-Blogs - February 14-20, 2010

Someone forgot to write down his Best of the Genea-Blogs picks for this past week... I was at my daughter's home in Santa Cruz and was able to read my Bloglines, but neglected to write down the ones that struck me as a "Best of..." When I got home, I blithely read the accumulated blog posts and didn't note any of them, until I realized last night that I had failed miserably all week (uh oh, will I be near the top of the Google search results for the phrase "failed miserably?"). I have over 600 genealogy blogs in my Bloglines list, so it is an impossible task to sort through all of them in an hour or two today.

So - I ask my readers to nominate a genealogy-related blog post from the past week - either one of their own (which was your absolute best?) or a post written by someone else. Put them in Comments to this post, or in a comment on Facebook, and I will add them to this post with proper credit to the nominator.

Thankfully, several other genealogy bloggers have done their usual fine job of highlighting genealogy news and blog posts, see:

* John Newmark has posted his Weekly Genealogy Picks today on the TransylvanianDutch blog.

* Megan Smolenyak posted her Genealogy Round Up, February 18 on the Roots Television: Megan's Roots World blog.

* Diane Haddad posted Genealogy News Corral: February 15-19 on The Genealogy Insider blog.

* Brian Zalewski posted several blog posts in his Follow Friday picks on the Zalewski Family Genealogy blog.

* Apple is on vacation, so she cannot cover for me. I hope she's having a great time with John enjoying the warm (?) weather in the South.

* Thomas MacEntee has posted his weekly New Genealogy Blogs 20 February 2010 on Geneabloggers blog - go visit some new blog writers!

Are there any other blog summaries posted for this past week? Tell me and I'll add them to this list.

So - readers! - come on, bail me out! What genealogy-related blog post do you recommend? Make me work hard here...

UPDATED 2 p.m.: Miriam Robbins Midkiff really bailed me out - she suggests these:

* 26th Edition of the Carnival of Central and Eastern European Genealogy

* We Hold These Truths to Be Self Evident

* Unbelievable! What Can Be Done?

* Part of Berrien County, Michigan, is in Kalamazoo?

* Removing the Blogger Navigation Bar

* Treasure Chest Thursday: Heirloom or Hairloom, You Decide!

* The Carnival's In Town - Smile 20th Edition

* Guest Blogger on WorldCat.org!

* Carnival of Genealogy, 90th Edition

* Faces of America, Episode 2

* NARA Naturalization Records

* Why the Dialogue MUST Continue: My Answer to Terry Thornton's Query

More?

I wish I was still in Florida! Nice resort but no internet access so I'm thinking it will take a long time to get through my reader. I'm hoping your other readers will help us both out!
