Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 2 to 8 January 2022

 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:

*  Looking Back, Looking Forward: 2022 by Leah Larkin on The DNA Geek.

New Year, New Goals by Paul Chiddicks on The Chiddicks Family Tree.
