Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 27 February to 5 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:

What Does That Mean? by Raymond Addison on Vita Brevis.

Writing It Down by Kelly Wheaton on Wheaton Wood.

*  New features for maps, trees and WATO at DNA Painter by Jonny Perl on DNA Painter Blog.

*  Mining for Gold – Working With “Relatives at RootsTech” by Roberta Estes on DNAeXplained - Genetic Genealogy.

Relatives at RootsTech by John Boeren on Antecedentia.

*  Important Last-Minute 1950 US Census Info by Marian B. Wood on Climbing My Family Tree.
