Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 7 to 13 November 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:

*  17 Tips for Using Google Search for Genealogy and Beyond the Search Engine: Using Google Databases for Genealogy Research by Kenneth Marks on The Ancestor Hunt.

*  Do You Know These Expressions Your Ancestors Used? (Part 1) by Jessica Edwards on GenealogyBank Blog.
