Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 13 to 19 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:

*  Taking a Family History Road Trip: 5 Tips for Success by Diana Elder on Family Locket.

*  Top 5 Genealogy Brick Wall Busters by Diane Henriks on Know Who Wears The Genes In Your Family: Family History And Genealogy.​
