Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 27 June to 3 July 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:

THE Genealogy Show 2021: A review by Linda Stufflebean on Empty Branches on the Family Tree.

A Nice New Feature at DNA Painter by Kitty Cooper on Kitty Cooper's Blog.

The Revised FamilySearch Help Center by James Tanner on Genealogy's Star.

Thanks for the shout out again today, Randy. By the way, I was inspired by your Patriots post today. What a grand list! Happy Fourth!
