Best of the Genea-Blogs - 21 to 27 April 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:

*  Episode 279 – Ancestry Exec Reveals Record Set Releases For 2019/2020 / Melanie McComb Talks Jewish Records And Tips by Scott Fisher on the Extreme Genes blog.

*  6 Sources that May Name Your Ancestors’ Parents by Lisa Louise Cooke on the Lisa Louise Cooke blog.

*  Why Write a Family History if No One Wants to Read it by Devon Noel Lee on the Family History Fanatics blog.
