Best of the Genea-Blogs - 25 September to 1 October 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:

*  More Bang For Your Buck:  From AncestryDNA to MyHeritage by Leah Larkin on The DNA Geek.

*  Why was Old Man Jacob Dobkins’ Will Fraudulently Secreted, Concealed and Destroyed? – 52 Ancestors #375 by Roberta Estes on DNAeXplained - Genetic Genealogy.

Death Date by Marcia Philbrick on Heartland Genealogy.

*  CORA'S SCRAPBOOK ~ Charles & Daisy Hall move their family to San Diego - Cora also went with them - 1913 by Diane Gould Hall on Michigan Family Trails.

*  The Genealogy Research Process : Improve Your Family History Research by Jennifer Dondero on The Occasional Genealogist.

*  Avoid These Genealogy & DNA Mistakes by Ellen Thompson-Jennings on Hound on the Hunt.
