Best of the Genea-Blogs - 26 February to 4 March 2017

Hundreds of genealogy and family history bloggers write thousands of posts every week about their research, their families, and their interests. I appreciate each one of them and their efforts.

My criteria for "Best of ..." are pretty simple - I pick posts that advance knowledge about genealogy and family history, address current genealogy issues, provide personal family history, are funny or arepoignant. I don't list posts destined for daily blog prompts or meme submissions (but I do include summaries of them), or my own posts.

Here are my picks for great reads from the genealogy blogs for this past week:

* There is No Genealogical Magic by Michael John Neill on the blog.

*  The Last of Our Kind by Wayne Shepheard on the Discover Genealogy blog.

*   Organize Your Genealogy: Tips from a Professional Organizer by Amy Johnson Crow on the Amy Johnson Crow blog.

*  Step-by-Step: My Intractable Problem  by Jill Morelli on the Genealogy Certification: My Personal Journal blog.

*  Meet the Man Who Claimed to Have the World's Longest Last Name by Stacy Conradt on the Mental Floss blog.  Heh.

*  Keeping Your Multiple Trees Updated by Kitty Cooper on Kitty Cooper's Blog.

*  Genealogy 101: #14 Marriage Licenses by Gena Philibert-Ortega on the GenealogyBank Blog.

*  Four Reasons Why the 1910 Census is My Favorite by Amie Bowser Tennant on the My Kith N Kin blog.

*  I Finally Found My Elusive Female (Twin) Ancestors in Findmypast's Records by Niall Cullen on the Findmypast Blog.
