Best of the Genea-Blogs - 25 May to 1 June 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:

*   Visualizing your Tree - With Expected Autosomal & X DNA Shared by Lara Diamond on the Lara's Jewnealogy blog.

Would It Help If Genealogists Shared Stories as Short as a Tweet? by Gail Dever on the Genealogy a la Carte blog.

Using AncestryDNA ThruLines to Further Your Genealogy Research by Gretchen on the Legacy Tree Genealogists blog.

*  What Is the Future of Obituaries? by Kenneth R. Marks on The Ancestor Hunt blog.

Finding Palatine Ancestors by Lorine McGinnis Schulze on the Olive Tree Genealogy Blog.

*  Why You Are Not Finding Your Ancestors in the New York State Death Indexes by Debra Dudek on the Fountaindale Public Library & Genealogy & Research Blog.

Bloggers Research Toolboxes - 2019 by Linda Stufflebean on the Empty Branches on the Family Tree blog.

The Archive Lady:  What Is An Archive by Melissa Barker on the Abundant Genealogy blog.

The Trouble With Genealogy Conferences by Jacqi Stevens on A Family Tapestry blog.

FamilySearch Tree and Sources by Marcia Philbrick on the Heartland Genealogy blog.

Here are pick posts by other geneabloggers this week:

Thanks for including me in your "Best of" for this week, Randy! And it was great chatting with you at Jamboree. Thanks for the excellent advice, which I can't wait to follow up on.
