Best of the Genea-Blogs - 27 May to 2 June 2018

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:

*  Write Family History Now, Add Or Change Later by Marian B. Wood on the Climbing My Family Tree blog.

15 Reasons Why Genealogy is Like Gardening by Alona Tester on the LoneTester HQ blog.

*  Episode 238 – Woodbury Has Concerns About GEDMatch And Cold Cases / The Virtual Genealogical Society Is Here! by Ryan Bennett on the Extreme Genes blog.

Lessons Learned From My 3 Trips to the Old Country by Diann Iamarino on the Fortify Your Family Tree blog.

Contact Those Cousins! by Christopher C. Child on the Vita Brevis blog.
