Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 23 to 29 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:

* Are You Your Ancestor’s Doppelganger? Find Out What Your Ancestor Looked Like by Lisa Lisson on Are You My Cousin?

Statements, Genealogical Statements, and Definitions by Michael John Neill on Rootdig.

*  Now AncestorSearch can cut through the muck of all of those annoying People Search sites by Randy Majors on

Why DNA Had Become a Divisive Topic by Ryan Ross on Once Removed.

*  The Archive Lady: Tips for Researching in Courthouses by Melissa Barker on Abundant Genealogy.

*  Don't Let Assumptions Mislead you in Your Genealogy Research by Lorine McGinnis Schulze on Olive Tree Genealogy Blog.
