Best of the Genea-Blogs - 19 to 25 January 2020

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:

*  SEMINARS ~ A Day with Warren Bittner at the San Diego Genealogical Society by Diane Gould Hall on Michigan Family Trails.

Will Doing More Help You Do More Genealogy? by Jennifer Dondero on The Occasional Genealogist.

*  San Francisco Coroner’s Records are Interesting and Disturbing by Melody Lassalle on Genealogy Research Journal.

*  Where Are My Ancestors From? 5 Tips for Using Migration Patterns in Family History Research by Jessica on Legacy Tree Genealogists.
