Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 24 to 30 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:

Researching Your Farming Ancestors by Linda Stufflebean on the Empty Branches on the Family Tree blog.

DeGroot Family Visits Goodriaan and Lexmond by John Boeren on the Antecedentia blog.

*  How I’m Using Curt Witcher’s RootsTech Class: Five Things All Genealogists Should Do Before They Die by Alyson Mansfield on the OnGenealogy blog.
