Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 8 to 14 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:

*  This 20th-Century Mom Had 22 Kids by Esther on MyHeritage Blog.

*  Ancestry Sideview Technology™ – Me & Dad by Ellen Thompson-Jennings on Hound on the Hunt.

*  Reflections on the Young Genealogists’ Conference by Janet Few on The History Interpreter - Janet Few.

'National Treasure' Time by Lindsay Fulton on Vita Brevis.

 Introducing the Library of Matches by Jonny Perl on DNA Painter Blog.

*  Ancestry Only Shows Shared Matches of 20 cM and Greater – What That Means & Why It Matters by Roberta Estes on DNAeXplained - Genetic Genealogy.

Cousin Russ -- We'll Miss You, and Thank You by Geoff Rasmussen on Legacy News.

 16 Hidden Genealogy Clues That Help Determine Relationships by Kenneth Marks on The Ancestor Hunt.

Bobby On the Beat by Judith Batchelor on Genealogy Jude.

*  D N A Matching : It's a Marathon, Not a Sprint by Jacqi Stevens on A Family Tapestry.

*  Celebration Sunday-Genealogy Happy Dance!-Remembering Cousin Russ by Cheri Hudson Passey on Carolina Girl Genealogy.

Here are pick posts by other geneabloggers this week:
