Best of the Genea-Blogs - 28 August to 3 September 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:

 Colonial Parish and Vestry Records - VA and Carolinas by Kathleen Brandt on a3Genealogy.

 Property Map Treasure Hunts: Finding the Places Your Ancestors Lived by Kelly Wheaton on Wheaton Wood.

Divorced by Marcia Philbrick on Heartland Genealogy.

*  DNA: In Search of…Full and Half-Siblings by Roberta Estes on DNAeXplained - Genetic Genealogy.

Estate Planning by Ann Raymont on DNAsleuth.

*  Ann Palmer’s Story by Janet Few on The History Interpreter - Janet Few.

*  Why You Should Use Cyndi’s List: Have a Plan (Location) by Cari Taplin on Genealogy Pants.

*  Library and Archives Canada’s new website goes live — and it’s good by Gail Dever on Genealogy a la Carte.

*  Uncovering Thomas Dalton’s Tragedy by Aidan Walsh on Vita Brevis.

*  Age, Technology, and other Myths and Concerns by James Tanner on Genealogy's Star.

*  Endogamy, Pedigree Collapse, and Multiple Relationships: What’s the Difference and Why Does it Matter? by Diana Elder on Family Locket.

Here are pick posts by other geneabloggers this week:
