Best of the Genea-Blogs - 2 to 8 April 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:

Artificial Intelligence and Genealogy by Dr. Mac on A Week of Genealogy.

*  20 Best Genealogy, DNA, and Family History Apps for 2023 by Thomas MacEntee on Genealogy Bargain$.

*  Genealogical Clusters by Alicia Crane Williams on Vita Brevis.

*  Daniel’s Favorites: 7 Historical Record Collections on MyHeritage That You Should Bookmark by Daniella on MyHeritage Blog.

Trail Resources by Marcia Philbrick on Heartland Genealogy.
