Best of the Genea-Blogs - 2 to 8 February 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:

* How They Do It:  Julie Goucher by Janine Adams on Organize Your Family History.

Using the Work of Others by Judy G. Russell on The Legal Genealogist.

*  DNAPainter: Painting “Bucketed” Family Tree DNA Maternal and Paternal Family Finder Matches in One Fell Swoop by Roberta Estes on DNAeXplained - Genetic Genealogy.

Some “Same Name” Fun in  My Koonce Surname Project by Taneya Koonce on Taneya’s Genealogy Blog.

*  Strategies to Meet Standards with DNA Evidence – Compelling SLIG Course by Nicole Dyer on Family Locket

*  Preserving, Protecting, And Growing The Pursuit of Genealogy (February 7, 2020) by John D. Tew on Filiopietism Prism.
