Best of the Genea-Blogs - 20 to 26 November 2022

 Scores of genealogy and family history bloggers write hundreds 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:

*  Using the Fan Methodology to Find a Female’s Father: Part 3- Research Logging and Report Writing by Diana Elder on Family Locket.

*  When Is a Genealogy Harvest Too Big? by DiAnn Iamarino on Fortify Your Family Tree.

*  The Irish way of death  by John Grenham on John Grenham - Irish Roots.

How Genealogy Research Provides Comfort After a DNA Surprise by Kara Rubinstein Deyerin on Legacy Tree Genealogists.

DAD by Bill West on West in New England.

 Finding A Place For Rachel Throop In My Loyalist Parker Family by Linda Stufflebean on Empty Branches on the Family Tree.

*  Booties from Chief BlackHawk by Michael Dwyer on Vita Brevis.

*  5 Underutilized Native American Research Resources by Kathleen Brandt on a3Genealogy.

*  40 Questions to Preserve Your Family History by Denys Allen on PA History.

*  Immigration: The Greatest Genealogical Challenge, Part One: The larger picture by James Tanner on Genealogy's Star.

Here are pick posts by other geneabloggers this week:
