Best of the Genea-Blogs- Week of 19-25 June 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:

*  Seven Sure Steps to Discovering Your Ancestors by James Tanner on Genealogy's Star.

*  Genealogy Blogs: Read, Comment, Repeat! by Marian B. Wood on Climbing My Family Tree.

*  Native American DNA/Tall Tale or True? by Annette Kapple on AK's Genealogy Research.

New Genea-Gem:  New York Heritage by Linda Stufflebean on Empty Branches on the Family Tree.

*  Sometimes The Internet Makes Me Smile; In Which I Avoid A Trip To The County Offices, A Canal Moves, And News Arrives From Ireland by Ellie on Ellie's Ancestors.

500 Free Library of Congress Digital Collections by Kenneth Marks on The Ancestor Hunt.

*  Broken Branch – When the End of the Line Families Are Not Well-Documented by Lisa S. Gorrell on Mam-ma's Southern Family.

A Serendipitous Conversation by Michael Dwyer on Vita Brevis.

*  Renewing the Accredited Genealogist Ⓡ Credential by Diana Elder on Family Locket.

*  Boots on the Ground Remains Important by Lori Samuelson on

Here are pick posts by other geneabloggers this week:

Thank you for this week's inclusion on your list. I can't believe I am still uncovering new GeneaGems, but there are even more on the way with the constantly new digital resources becoming accessible.
