Best of the Genea-Blogs - 31 March to 6 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:

Opt-out is Not Informed Consent by Judy G. Russell on The Legal Genealogist blog.

How to Export a FamilySearch GEDCOM with RootsMagic by Alyson Mansfield on the OnGenealogy blog.

Ask One Question for Better Genealogy Results by DiAnn Iamarino on the Fortify Your Family Tree blog.

Three of My Favorite Genealogical Finding Aids by Gena Philibert-Ortega on the Legacy News blog.

*  Back to the Basics with Land Records: Part 3 – Land Grants & Patents by Diana Elder on the Family Locket blog.
