Best of the Genea-Blogs - 7 to 13 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:

*  Episode 289 – GedMatch Founder Curtis Rogers Talks Law Enforcement / Adoptee Rights Spokespeople Discuss New York Legislative Victory by Ryan B. on Extreme Genes.

*  Evidence Analysis Explained: Digging Into Genealogical Sources by Robert on Legacy Tree Genealogists.

The Woman in His Life: Finding Female Ancestors via Their Husbands by Gena Philibert-Ortega on GenealogyBank Blog.

*  How Many of These Must-Visit Genealogy Destinations Have You Been To? by Janet Meydam on Family History Daily.

Coming To Terms with Social Media by Jacqi Stevens on A Family Tapestry.

The Fastest, Easiest Way to Organize Your DNA Matches by Diaham Southard on Your DNA Guide.

The Archive Lady: Courthouse Research by Melissa Barker or Abundant Genealogy.

You're the Scientist in Your Family Tree by DiAnn Iamarino on Fortify Your Family Tree.

* Anatomy of a Genealogy Mistake by Nancy Loe on Sassy Jane Genealogy.

Finally Figured "It" Out by Russ Worthington on A Worthington Web Log.

Here are pick posts by other geneabloggers this week:

*  Friday's Family History Finds by Linda Stufflebean on Empty Branches on the Family Tree.
