Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 7 to 13 March 2021

 Scores 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:

*  23andMe Changes: Triangulation Doesn’t Work the Same Way by Roberta Estes on DNAeXplained - Genetic Genealogy.

*  Genealogy: Ethics, Ownership, Work Product, Plagiarism, and Privacy, Part One by James Tanner on Genealogy's Star.

A Word of Warning by Martin Roe Eidhammer on Norwegian Genealogy and then some.

Tracking Runaway Indentured Servants by Kathleen Brandt on a3Genealogy.

Finding Birth AND Adoptive Families by Kathie Knoll on Your DNA Guide.

Looking For Earlier Marriages by Christopher C. Child on Vita Brevis.

*  The Good, the Sad, the Ugly: Genealogy Programs During the Pandemic by Marian B. Wood on Climbing My Family Tree.

Go for the Original by Judy G. Russell on The Legal Genealogist.

How to Write a Captivating Family History Using Newspapers by Natalie on Genealogy Stories.

More Than Just a Housewife: Writing About Your Grandmother by Gena Philibert-Ortega on Legacy News.

Myles Standish and the Lost Colony of Massachusetts by Leslie Landrigan on New England Historical Society Blog.

Here are pick posts by other geneabloggers this week:
