Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 19 to 25 April 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:

Forensic & Probate Research FAQ by the writer on Legacy Tree Genealogists.

*  Concepts: Chromosome Browser – What Is It, How Do I Use It, and Why Do I Care? by Roberta Estes on DNAeXplained - Genetic Genealogy.
