Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 13 to 19 February 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:

Researching at PRONI by Donna Moughty on Irish Family Roots.

 If you don't share it -- You lose it! -- Part Two by James Tanner on Genealogy's Star.

*  Is Worth the Money for Your Genealogy Research? by Will Moneymaker on Ancestral Findings.

*  Put your sibling tests to work with the Shared cM Investigator by Jonny Perl on DNA Painter Blog.

*  Manual Clustering From the Bottom Up by Jim Bartlett on Segment-ology.

*  Great Cousin Bait: Ancestor Landing Pages by Marian B. Wood on Climbing My Family Tree.

 The Bread and Butter of Latin American Research: Church and Civil Registration Records by Becca Spencer on Legacy Tree Genealogists.

*  Lorine McGinnis Schulze of Olive Tree Genealogy passes away by Gail Dever on Genealogy a la Carte.  A wonderful genealogist!

Part 3: Pennsylvania Germans: Guiding Principles for Research by Alice Childs on Family Locket.

*  1950 US Census Prep: Using ED Maps and Descriptions by Marian B. Wood on Climbing My Family Tree.

Here are pick posts by other geneabloggers this week:

*  Friday's Family History Finds by Linda Stufflebean on Empty Branches on the Family Tree.
