Best of the Genea-Blogs - 21 to 27 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:

DNA Painter Tree by Marcia Philbrick on Heartland Genealogy.

Theories & Critical Thinking by Pat Richley-Erickson on Myrt's Musings.

*  Evidence Analysis Explained Part III: Evaluating Genealogical Evidence by Robert on Legacy Tree Genealogists.

*  Significant changes to the FamilySearch Family Tree Memories App by James Tanner on Rejoice, and be exceeding glad...

*  A DNA Inspired Family Reunion - Part 1; Part 2; Part 3 by Sam Williams on Ancestral Anamnesis.
