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:
* Why Is There a GEDCOM Standard and Why We Need a Version 7.0 by James Tanner on Genealogy's Star.
* GenealogyBank Review -- and How To Maximize Your Trial and 7 Tips for Newspaper Searches on GenealogyBank by Margaret O'Brien on Data Mining DNA.
* FamilySearch Remote Access Services Solves a Mystery by Marian B. Wood on Climbing My Family Tree.
* The Bright Lights of Genealogy -- Learning To Focus by Gena Philibert-Ortega on Legacy News.
* Part 6: Tracing Your 19th Century German Ancestors: Using DNA by Heidi Mathis on Family Locket.
Here are pick posts by other geneabloggers this week:
