Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 11 to 17 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:

*  Forever Missed, But Never Forgotten by Paul Chiddicks on The Chiddicks Family Tree.

*  Two marriages – same John Morris? by Teresa on Writing My Past.

*  To Colorize Or Not To Colorize; In Which I Compare The Ancestry And MyHeritage Technology So You Don't Have To by Ellie on Ellie's Ancestors.

Mystery Lands by Marcia Philbrick on Heartland Genealogy.

*  3 Key Steps to Identify a DNA Match by DiAnn Iamarino on Fortify Your Family Tree.

*  Art of Family History | Episode 32 by Prudence on The Creative Family Historian.

*  What's happening with RootsTech in 2023 by Jenny Joyce on Jennyalogy.

*  The Sad Story of Charles Garner; Or, Don't Forget to Check Those Extra Census Schedules by Ellie on Ellie's Ancestors.

*  Tracing a British Seaman in the Royal Navy before 1853 by Judith Batchelor on Genealogy Jude.

It's Complicated! by Eileen Lyon on Myricopia.

*  The highs and lows of Roxanne Bryant’s death certificate by Pearl on GeneaJournals.

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 - 16th Sept 2022 by Crissouli on That Moment In Time.

* This Week's Creme de la Creme - September 17, 2022  by Gail Dever on Genealogy a la Carte.
