Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 17 to 23 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:

GRIP 2022 (July) Debrief by Julie Cahill Tarr on Julie's Genealogy & History Hub.

*  Take the time to write about your research by Marie Cooke Beckman on MarieB's Genealogy Blog--Southeastern USA.

*  A first look at the Virtual Treasury by Donna Moughty on Irish Family Roots.

*  Guided by the Ancestors by Kristin on Finding Eliza.
