Best of the Genea-Blogs - 8 to 14 September 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:

*  How RootsTech & Thomas W Jones Changed My Life by Amberly Beck on The Genealogy Girl.

Citing Google Maps by Judy G. Russell on The Legal Genealogist.

*  Search for Ancestors in Insane Asylums by Lorine McGinnis Schulze on The Olive Tree Genealogy Blog.

*  Super Human? Magician? Freaking Miracle Worker? Close…We’re Genealogists! by Katy on Legacy Tree Genealogists.

*  MyHeritage LIVE 2019 Amsterdam Day 1 AND Day 2 and Party by Roberta Estes on DNAeXplained – Genetic Genealogy.

*  Why Doesn’t My Navy Grandpa’s Discharge Show All His Stations/Units/Ships? by Jennifer Holik on WWII Research & Writing Center.
