Best of the Genea-Blogs - 2 to 8 April 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 are poignant. 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:

*  Monday Mailbox: Find A Grave by the writer of The Ancestry Insider blog.

*  Jessica Biel – A Follow-up: DNA, Native Heritage and Lies by Roberta J. Estes on the DNAeXplained -- Genetic Genealogy blog.

*  This Land is My Land! by Peggy Clemens Lauritzen on the Always Anxiously Engaged blog.

*  Four Reasons Why the 1910 Census is My Favorite by Amie Bowser Tennant on The Genealogy Reporter blog.

*  Are Family History Centers returning their microfilm to FamilySearch? by James Tanner on the Rejoice and be exceeding glad... blog.
