Best of the Genea-Blogs - 14 to 20 July 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:

Annual Review of The Rules of Genealogy: A New Rule is Added by James Tanner on Genealogy's Star.

Researching Scandinavia: What Records Are Available? by Linda Stufflebean on Empty Branches on the Family Tree.

*  Evidence Analysis Explained Part II: Evaluating Genealogy Information by Robert on Legacy Tree Genealogists.

* Proof Summaries by Michelle Norris on Vita Brevis.
