Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 7 to 13 August 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:

WikiTree and the FAN Principle by Kathleen on Voices From a Distant Past.

Walking the Clusters Back (WTCB) 2022 by Jim Bartlett on Segment-ology.

Research Notes Revisited by Marcia Philbrick on Heartland Genealogy.

*  How Much Does It Cost To Hire A Genealogist? by Jennifer Dondero on The Occasional Genealogist.

When Genealogical Evidence is Wrong, Wrong, Wrong by Kelly Wheaton on Wheaton Wood.

*  Discovering the New York Public Library Digital Collections by Gena Philibert-Ortega on Legacy News.

*  DNA: In Search of…Signs of Endogamy by Roberta Estes on DNAeXplained - Genetic Genealogy.

*  Free Update to Family Tree Maker 2019 for Registered Users by Keith Riggle on Genealogy Tools.

*  Southern Colonial Research: Maps and the Law by Diana Elder 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.

*  Friday Fossicking - 12th August 2022 by Crissouli on That Moment In Time.
