Best of the Genea-Blogs - 5 to 11 June 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:

*  Disaster Planning for Genealogists by Melissa Barker on A Genealogist in the Archives blog.

*  Mastering Genealogical Proof & Mastering Genealogical Documentation by Colleen G. Brown Pasquale on the Leaves & Branches blog.

*  5 Ways to Use Trello for Genealogy and Family History by Lisa Alzo on the Legacy News blog.

*  Remembering Dad with a Family History Interview Video by Lisa Louise Cooke on Lisa Louise Cooke's Genealogy Gems blog.

*   A Weekend at the Auckland (New Zealand) Family History Conference by Dick Eastman on the Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter blog.

*  Find "Missing" Family Photos on Instagram by Maureen Taylor on the Maureen Taylor blog.

*  How They Do It: D. Joshua Taylor by Janine Adams on the Organize Your Family History blog.

*  Finding Your Tribe -- Worth Writing About by Laura Hedgecock on the Treasure Chest of Memories blog.

*  DNA Groups on Facebook by Michele Simmons Lewis on the Ancestoring blog.
