Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 26 March to 2 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:

*  Keeping track of genetic ancestors: did you know? #2 and New gridlines and enhanced chromosome view in maps by Jonny Perl on DNA Painter Blog.

*  New Look for Category and Collection Pages for Historical Records by Talya on MyHeritage Blog.

*  Old And New Tools At MyHeritage by Ellen Thompson-Jennings on Hound on the Hunt.

*  Ancestry 2023 Updates: New Genealogy and DNA Tools and Features by Diane Henriks on Know Who Wears the Genes in Your Family.

*  All you need to do is ask! by Blanca Bruso on Vita Brevis.

*  The Order of AncestryDNA’s “Colored Dots” by Dana Leeds on Dana Leeds.

*  Internet Archive loses copyright case by Judy G. Russell on The Legal Genealogist.

*  X Chromosome Master Class by Roberta Estes on DNAeXplained - Genetic Genealogy.

Sellers Cluster by Marcia Philbrick on Heartland Genealogy.

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 31st Mar 2023 by Crissouli on That Moment In Time.
