Best of the Genea-Blogs -22 to 28 July 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:

Using Date Standardization in  Genealogy Research by Michelle Lewis on the Legacy News blog.

Penitentiary Records by Kathleen Brandt on the a3 Genealogy blog.

Honoring Laura by Judy G. Russell on The Legal Genealogist blog.

*  Nita’s Story: An Adoptee’s Journey to Discover Biological Roots by the writer on the LegacyTree Genealogists blog.

How They Do It: Sunny Morton by Janine Adams on the Organize Your Family History blog.
