Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 5 to 11 September 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 Small Segment Debate Is Over by Leah Larkin on The DNA Geek.

The Worst Genealogy Mistake by Jennifer Dondero on The Occasional Genealogist.

ThruLines is Not the Enemy by History Chick on Genealogical Musings.

Chromosome Painting | FTDNA and 23andMe by Diahan Southard on Your DNA Guide.
