Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 22 to 28 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:

*  Ethical Dilemmas and How To Approach Them by Paul Chiddicks on The Chiddicks Family Tree.

 *  Where to Find Genealogy and Family History Books and Library of Congress Genealogy Collections by Kenneth Marks on The Ancestor Hunt.

*  Top 5 Irish Genealogy Websites by Diane Henriks on Know Who Wears The Genes In Your Family: Family History and Genealogy.

*  A Major Family Tree Change to Fix an Ongoing Problem by DiAnn Iamarino on Fortify Your Family Tree.

*  Why Do-Over? by Marcia Philbrick on Heartland Genealogy.

*  The 3 Genealogy Mistakes You Have to Tame to Improve Your Skills by Jennifer Dondero on The Occasional Genealogist.
