Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 10 to 16 July 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:

*  A Family at War (Part 2) by Paul Chiddicks on The Chiddick's Family Tree.

*  Ireland’s New Virtual Record Treasury is online! by Sean Daly on GeneaNet.

Conflicting Sources by Marcia Philbrick on Heartland Genealogy.

*  How Much DNA Do Half-Siblings Share and Why Genealogists Need to Know by Jennifer Dondero on The Occasional Genealogist.

*  DNA-eXplained Celebrates Tenth Anniversary! by Roberta Estes on DNAeXplained - Genetic Genealogy.

 Can we preserve the integrity of the Family Tree? by James Tanner on Genealogy's Star.

Pension Record Insights by Danielle Rose on Vita Brevis.

*  Google Tips for Your Next Search by Gena Philibert-Ortega on Legacy News.

*  Introducing FamilyTreeDNA Discover™ by the writer on FamilyTreeDNA Blog.

*   Jude’s Gen – Organising DNA Matches on Ancestry by Judith Batchelor on Genealogy Jude.

Here are pick posts by other geneabloggers this week:

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

*  Friday Fossicking - 15th Jul 2022 by Crissouli on That Moment In Time.

* This Week's Creme de la Creme - July 16, 2022  by Gail Dever on Genealogy a la Carte.
