Best of the Genea-Blogs - 12 to 18 March 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:

*  The DNA Justice Foundation by Leah Larkin on The DNA Geek.

*  Use Color-Coding to Solve Mystery DNA Matches by DiAnn Iamarino Ohana on Fortify Your Family Tree.

*  RootsTech: After the Party  by Gena Philibert-Ortega on GenealogyBank Blog.

*  Canadian 1931 Census to Be Released on June 1st 2023 by Chris Paton on Scottish GENES.
