Best of the Genea-Blogs -- Week of 16 to 22 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:

*  Do You Know Who You Are? by Paul Chiddicks on Chiddick's Family Tree.

*  Ancestry’s New DNA Compare Feature! by Diane Henriks on Know Who Wears the Genes in Your Family.

*  My Ancestors in Compiled Genealogy Books: A Bibliography by Heather Wilkinson Rojo on Nutfield Genealogy.

*  Where Will Your Roots Map Take You? by DiAnn Iamarina Ohana on Fortify Your Family Tree.

*  FamilySearch Library: Exploring & Understanding the Resources Available to Researchers – RootsTech 2023 by Linda Stufflebean on Empty Branches on the Family Tree.

*  Finally! A cM slider for chromosome maps by Jonny Perl on DNA Painter Blog.

 So, You Want to Become a Professional Genetic Genealogist by Roberta Estes on DNAeXplained - Genetic Genealogy.

*  5 Ways to Use ChatGPT to Research an Ancestor by Dr. Mac on A Week of Genealogy.

*  Making ChatGPT a Valuable Genealogy Assistant by Laura Clark Murray on Family Locket.

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 21st April 2023 by Crissouli on That Moment In Time.
