Best of the Genea-Blogs - 17 to 23 October 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:

Digging Deep to Find My Roots by Paul Chiddicks on The Chiddicks Family Tree.

*  Location, Location Location: Changing Names and Jurisdictions & Finding Records by Kelly Wheaton on Wheaton Wood.

*  More Resources for Irish Research for Family History Month by Donna Moughty on Irish Family Roots.

*  AutoSegment Triangulation Cluster Tool at GEDmatch by Roberta Estes on DNAeXplained - Genetic Genealogy.
