Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 27 November to 3 December 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:

*  Let’s Be Thankful for These 10 Family History Things by Bob Taylor on The Family History Guide Blog.

*  Fun Finds On Digital Public Library Of  America (DPLA) by Linda Stufflebean on Empty Branches on the Family Tree.

*  Genealogy Tip: Obituaries by Katie Rebecca Garner on GenealogyBank Blog.

*  Getting the Most Out of U.S. Border Crossing Records for Mexican Genealogy by Colleen Robledo Greene on Colleen Robledo Greene.

 County Histories: Clues to Other Records, Newspapers by Cari Taplin on Genealogy Pants.

*  15 Steps to Finding Your Immigrant Ancestors by Melissa on Legacy Tree Genealogists.

*  Chromosomes and Genealogy by Roberta Estes on DNAeXplained - Genetic Genealogy.

*  How Many Generations Back Are We All Related? by Mercedes on Who are You Made Of?.

*  36,146,750 completely searchable and readable books, by James Tanner on Genealogy's Star.
