Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 26 February to 4 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:

*  Genealogy Information in Passport Applications and 17 Things You Can Find in Criminal Records by Kenneth R. Marks on The Ancestor Hunt.

RootsMagic 9 by Marcia Philbrick on Heartland Genealogy.

*  Exploring a New Feature You Didn't Know You Need by DiAnn Iamarino Ohana on Fortify Your Family Tree.

*  Book Review: I Know Who You Are, by Barbara Rae-Venter by Leah Larkin on The DNA Geek.

*  RootsTech 2023 - Pre-event by Miles Meyer on Miles' Genealogy Tips.

*  RootsTech 2023 Opens! Let the Fun Begin! by Linda Stufflebean on Empty Branches on the Family Tree.

*  What is DNA Compare on Ancestry? by Mercedes on Who Are You Made Of?

Book Review: "Generation by Generation" by Marian B. Wood on Climbing My Family Tree.

*  How Accurate Are Ancestry DNA Matches? by a writer on GenealogyBank Blog.

*  Cite-Builder: A Genealogy Source Citation Generator by Nicole Dyer on Family Locket.

*  Evaluating’s ThruLines by Lori Samuelson on Genealogy At Heart.

Here are pick posts by other geneabloggers this week:

*  Friday's Family History Finds by Linda Stufflebean on Empty Branches on the Family Tree.

*  Friday Fossicking 3rd Mar 2023 by Crissouli on That Moment In Time.
