Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 27 January to 2 February 2019

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:

*  RootsTech 2019 conference handouts available through app by Gail Dever on the Genealogy a la carte blog.

*  NSW: Tuesday – A surprising amount of motherhood by Kirsty Gray on the Family Wise Ltd. blog.
