Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 1 to 7 May 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 Incredible Journey…………. by Paul Chiddicks on The Chiddicks Family Tree.

Let's Talk About Death by Kelly Wheaton on Wheaton Wood.

*  Creating My All-Encompassing Genealogy Research Log in OneNote by Diana Bryan Quinn on Moments In Time, A Genealogy Blog.

*  The Goldie May Subway Map timeline tool now works with by James Tanner on Genealogy's Star.

*  The Easy Secret for DNA Success by Jennifer Dondero on The Occasional Genealogist.

*  Do You Dare to Try to Research Your Alsace Ancestors Online - in French? by Anne Morddel on The French Genealogy Blog.

*  Decoding Ancestor Occupations in 1950 US Census by Marian B. Wood on Climbing My Family Tree.

Judging the Records by Judy G. Russell on The Legal Genealogist.

 6+1 Books That Should Be On Every Genealogist's Reference Shelf  by Linda Stufflebean on Empty Branches on the Family Tree.

Sibling Deeds by Marcia Philbrick on Heartland Genealogy.

*  What will Family History look like in the Future? by Janet Few on The History Interpreter -- Janet Few.

*  Genealogy Source Citations Simplified by Lisa Stokes on Family Locket.

Here are pick posts by other geneabloggers this week:

I've had the same experience as Tricia with Linda's site...I do read the posts through Feedly, but can't comment on them anymore.
