Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 10 to 16 March 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:

Rise of the Genealogy Entrepreneur by Donna Cox Baker on the Golden Egg Genealogist blog.

How to Use's NEW MyTrees Tag Tool by Lisa Lisson on the Are You My Cousin? blog.

*  Ancestry’s ThruLines Dissected: How to Use and Not Get Bit by the ‘Gators by Roberta Estes on the DNAeXplained - Genetic Genealogy blog.

*  New Tools Everywhere! Exploring the New Tools at MyHeritage and AncestryDNA by Blaine Bettinger on The Genetic Genealogist blog.

Thank you for the mention on your list this week. The filmstrip problem is partially fixed, which makes me a bit hopeful that other improvements might be coming along sometime soon.
