Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 18 to 24 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:

*  DNA: Exploring AncestryDNA Thrulines by Anne Young on Anne's Family History.

*  UGA Summit of Excellence 2022: And That’s a Genealogy Wrap! by Diane Henriks of Know Who Wears The Genes In Your Family

*  9 Steps to Really Safeguard Your Family Tree by DiAnn Iamarino on Fortify Your Family Tree.

*  Connect Your DNA Test, and Others, to Your Tree by Roberta Estes on DNAeXplained - Genetic Genealogy.

Stop Following the Herd! by Ken McKinlay on Family Tree Knots.

*  How to Find Someone’s Maiden Name: A Comprehensive Guide by the writer on GenealogyBank Blog.

*  Autosomal DNA Coverage Calculator by Nicole Dyer on Family Locket.

 United States Free Online Genealogy Research Toolkits by Kenneth Marks on The Ancestor Hunt.

History, Genealogy and a Festival, Oh My! by Lori Samuelson on

Step by Step by Jacqi Stevens on A Family Tapestry.

Here are pick posts by other geneabloggers this week:

 Friday Fossicking - 23rd Sept 2022 by Crissouli on That Moment In Time.
