Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 3 to 9 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:

*  What You Missed Last Week at the FGS Conference in Pittsburgh by Dick Eastman on Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter.

*  Using Local Historical and Genealogical Societies to Further Your Genealogy Research by the writer of the Ancestral Findings blog.

*  When I Looked, Every Microfilm Had Been Digitized by James Tanner on the Genealogy's Star blog.

*  How They Do It: Crista Cowan by Janine Adams on the Organize Your Family History blog.

*  Are Large Genealogy Conferences Going the Way of Microfiche? by Christine Woodcock on the Scottish Genealogy Tips and Tidbits blog.

*  Weather It Is... by Judy G. Russell on The Legal Genealogist blog.

*  Who Needs This Junk?  Ephemera as Family History Evidence by Larry Naukum on The In-Depth Genealogist blog.

*  Why Do DNA Testing for Family History if You Already "Know" Your Tree? by Diahan Southard on Lisa Louise Cooke's Genealogy Gems blog.

*  5 First Aid Tips for Water Damaged Family Photos by Denise Levenick on The Family Curator blog.
