Best of the Genea-Blogs - 13 to 19 March 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:

Indexing Re-invented by Jacqi Stevens on A Family Tapestry.

*  My Sister is Gone, But Still I Smile by Kelly Wheaton on Wheaton Wood.

*  Genealogy Tips: Use FamilySearch with GenealogyBank by Gena Philibert-Ortega on Genealogy Bank Blog.

*  NYC historical vital records go online! by Judy G. Russell on The Legal Genealogist.

*  Many Paths to Sources: Newspapers, Part 3a by Cari Taplin on Genealogy Pants.

*  How To Use the FAN Club to Solve Your Genealogy Brick Walls by Julie Tarr on Genealogy In Action.

*  Part 7: Pennsylvania Germans: Church Records by Alice Childs on Family Locket.

*  None of your information about your family disappears from the FamilySearch Family Tree when you die by James Tanner on Genealogy's Star.

*  Keeping hope alive for family research during a terrible time by Vera Miller on Find Lost Russian & Ukrainian Family.

A Message From Louise St. Denis by her on The National Institute for Genealogical Studies Blog.

Here are pick posts by other geneabloggers this week:
