Best of the Genea-Blogs - 17 to 23 September 2017

Dozens 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:

*  Revisiting the Women and Early California Law by Judy G. Russell on The Legal Genealogist blog.

*  Family History and Project Based Learning at School by Nivole Dyer on the Family Locket blog.

*  Resources for Pennsylvania Research by Kathleen Brandt on the a3Genealogy blog.

*  Research Like a Pro Part 6: Write It Up by Diana Elder on the Family Locket blog.

*  The Archive Lady: How to Preserve Newspaper Clippings by Melissa Barker on the Abundant Genealogy blog.

*  New England Genealogy: Tips From David Lambert by Amy Johnson Crow on the Amy Johnson Crow blog.

*  RootsMagic, FamilySearch Family Tree ID Numbers, & RootsMagic Facebook Page by Nancy Messier on the My Ancestors and Me blog.
