Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 12 to 18 June 2022

 One of the blog themes I really love doing is this one - I think that excellence should be recognized on a regular basis.  I started it back in September 2007 and have missed a few weeks.  Including the last two weeks - as I was hospitalized from 26 May to 7 June and had a quadrupal coronary artery bypass operation that will take 6-8 weeks to fully recover from.

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:

*  Edna Estes Miller (1920-1990), Sister: Once Found, Twice Lost – 52 Ancestors #361 by Roberta Estes on DNAeXplained - Genetic Genealogy.

Converting Base Pairs to Centimorgans by Louis Kessler on Behold Genealogy.

*  My Mom’s DNA and Genealogical Connection to Katja by Joel Hartley on Hartley DNA & Genealogy.

Massachusetts Deeds and et al Deed by Marcia Philbrick on Heartland Genealogy.

*  7 Days to a Better Family Tree by DiAnn Iamarino on Fortify Your Family Tree.

One Simple Genealogy Research Habit: Are You Doing It? by Lisa Lisson on Are You My Cousin?

A Matter of Friendship by Judy G. Russell on The Legal Genealogist.

*  Historical Record Collections Added in April and May 2022 by Talya on MyHeritage Blog.

*  It’s Back! RootsTech 2023 Will Be Both Online and In-Person on FamilySearch Blog.

*  Historical U.S. Draft Registration and Enrollment Rules by Kenneth Marks on The Ancestor Hunt.

*  Find More Ancestors with Autosomal DNA by Increasing Coverage by Nicole Dyer on Family Locket.

Here are pick posts by other geneabloggers this week:

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