Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 6 to 12 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:

*  The dos and don’ts of DNA by Judy G. Russell on The Legal Genealogist.

*  FamilyTreeDNA Keynote, RootsTech Wrap + Special Show Pricing Still Available and Top Ten RootsTech 2022 DNA Sessions + All DNA Session Links by Roberta Estes on DNAeXplained - Genetic Genealogy.

The Future of Relationship Predictions by Leah Larkin on The DNA Geek.

Make Your Genealogy Life Easier With These 3 Strategies by Julie Tarr on Genealogy In Action.

*  The Sound of Our English Ancestors by Marian Pierre-Louis on Legacy News.

*  RootsTech 2022 – It’s All About Connection by Rachel Trotter on Evalogue.Life.

 It's Almost Here! Aare You Ready for the 1950 U.S. Census? and Part 2 by Linda Stufflebean on Empty Branches on the Family Tree.

No More Favorites! Plus a New Writing Challenge by Kelly Wheaton on Wheaton Wood.

*  The WITN (Witness) Tag in GEDCOM by Louis Kessler on Behold Genealogy.

Pending Arguments by Michelle Norris on Vita Brevis.

*  British Genealogy Brick Wall Breakthrough: A Case Study by Jamie Kay on Legacy Tree Genealogists.

 Part 6: Pennsylvania Germans: Probate Records by Alice Childs on Family Locket.
