Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 1 to 7 January 2023

 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:

*  Genealogy Tips: 10 Newspaper Searches for the New Year by Gena Philibert-Ortega on GenealogyBank Blog.

*  Wrapping Up 2022: Year in Review by Daniella on MyHeritage Blog.
