Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 20 to 26 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:

From Relatives at RootsTech to Relatives Face to Face by Jacqi Stevens on A Family Tapestry.

When Henry Silverstein Got Cold:  Fraud in the 1920 Census by Tammy Hepps on Homestead Hebrews.

*  Researching Colonial Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina by Kathleen Brandt on a3Genealogy.

Changes to More Than Cosmetic by James Tanner on Genealogy's Star.

*  How to Make Your Own Genealogy Correspondence Database by DiAnn Iamarino on Fortify Your Family Tree.
