Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 15 to 21 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:

Why Don't the Segments Triangulate? by Nicole Dyer on Family Locket.

*  Genealogists Can Find Shocking Family Stories by DiAnn Iamarino on Fortify Your Family Tree.

*  Using a Single Photo & DNA Matching, I Unlocked the Secret Her Grandmother Took to the Grave by Maria Brolin on MyHeritage Blog.

 Family History: Children’s Pastimes and Toys (1700 to 1950), Part 1 and Part 2 by Jessica Edwards on GenealogyBank Blog.

New GeneaGem: New Netherland Institute by Linda Stufflebean on Empty Branches on the Family Tree.

Stella Root Probate by Marcia Philbrick on Heartland Genealogy.

Without a Trace by Jacqi Stevens on A Family Tapestry.

*  STOP, THINK & RUN – Stop Innocently Giving Your Information to Cybercrooks on Social Media by Roberta Estes on DNAeXplained - Genetic Genealogy.

Morning Reports by Melanie McComb on Vita Brevis.

I Had Myself a Bawl by John Grenham on John Grenham - Irish Roots.

Here are pick posts by other geneabloggers this week:

*  Friday's Family History Finds by Linda Stufflebean on Empty Branches on the Family Tree.

* This Week's Creme de la Creme - May 21, 2022  by Gail Dever on Genealogy a la Carte.
