Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 6 to 12 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:

Back Home by Donna Moughty on Irish Family Roots.

*  The Effect of Pedigree Collapse on DNA Matching: A Case Study by Nicole Dyer on Family Locket.

*  Genealogical Corrections Are Good Practice, Not BSOs by Marian B. Wood on Climbing My Family Tree.

*  I Was Told My Dad Died at War. I Found Him Through MyHeritage DNA — and He’s Alive by Daniella on MyHeritage Blog.

*  Native American: Is She or Isn’t She? by Roberta Estes on DNAeXplained - Genetic Genealogy.

*  Correlation: When and How by Jill Morelli on Genealogy  Certification: My Personal Journal.

*  How Do You Use Genealogy Presentation Handouts? by Gena Philibert Ortega on Legacy News
