Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 10 to 16 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:

Another Online Site for Family History Month by Donna Moughty on Irish Family Roots.

Misdirected by Marcia Philbrick on Heartland Genealogy.

What You're Losing With Your Private Family Tree by DiAnn Iamarino on Fortify Your Family Tree.
