Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 3 to 9 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:

*  Using a Multidisciplinary Approach to DNA Analysis, Part 1 by Jim Owston on The Lineal Arboretum.

DNA Reality by Michael John Neill on Genealogy Tip of the Day.

Making :Progress by Marcia Philbrick on Heartland Genealogy.

*  How To Create Your OWN Genealogy Location Guide by Lisa Lisson on Are You My Cousin?

Segment Data for Ancestry Matches by Jim Bartlett on Segment-ology.

*  A Genealogy Vacation or Nothing Compares To Being There by Ellie on Ellie's Ancestors.

*  What’s In Your DNA At MyHeritage – Theory of Family Relativity™ (Updated) by Ellen Thompson-Jennings on Hound on the Hunt.

*  The Benefit of DNA Testing Multiple Family Members by Fiona Brooker on Memories in Time.

*  Reminder: Always get at least two sources. The Social Security Application by Cherie Lynn on Cherie Lynn's Herstory.

*  "So you do genealogy, right?" How a Legacy Hint and MyHeritage solved the case by Geoff Rasmussen on Legacy News.

*  Tips & Tricks for Working with Theories of Family Relativity by Roberta Estes on DNAeXplained - Genetic Genealogy.

Here are pick posts by other geneabloggers this week:
