Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 23 to 29 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:

*  The Joy of Tithe Records – Finding an Ancestor’s Home and More by Judith Bachelor on Genealogy Jude.

*  Make Ancestry Find the Relationship by Kitty Cooper on Kitty Cooper's Blog.

*  What My DNA Ethnicity Estimates Show & Do Not Show by Lisa S. Gorrell on My Trails Into the Past.

*  Genealogy Information in Funeral and Memorial Books by Kenneth Marks on The Ancestor Hunt.

*   19 Things You Can Do to Enhance Your Family Research by Marie Cooke Beckman on MareB's Genealogy Blog - Southeastern USA.

*  What Is a Sibling Anyway? Full, Half, Three-Quarters, Step, Adopted, Donor-Conceived & Twins by Roberta Estes on DNAeXplained - Genetic Genealogy.

*  5 Reason You MUST Look at Original Records by Lisa Louise Cooke on Lisa Louise Cooke.

*  Verify by Marcia C. Philbrick on Heartland Genealogy.

*  Turning the FAN Club into the FANI Club by Marian B. Wood on Climbing My Family Tree.

*  Using AI Effectively for Genealogy Research by the writer on Family Tree Genealogists.

*  Where to Find Property Deeds in Pennsylvania for Family History Research by Denys Allen on PA Research.
