Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 5 to 11 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:

How To Preserve a Legacy Together by Ellen Thompson-Jennings on Hound on the Hunt.

*  Genealogical Evidence and Proof: How to know if you’ve compiled enough evidence by Kate Eakman on Lisa Louise Cooke.
