Best of the Genea-Blogs - 4 to 10 June 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:

*  Segmentology Outline Updated by Jim Bartlett on Segment-ology.

*  How the genealogy world is changing by John D. Reid on Anglo-Celtic Connections.

*  Psychological Benefits of Family History Research by Nicole Dyer on Family Locket.

*  Rest of the Story by Marcia Philbrick on Heartland Genealogy.

*  THIS is Family History by Alice Childs on Alice Childs.

*  Too Many Tabs Tuesday by Ellen Thompson-Jennings on Hound on the Hunt.

*  My research-friendly computer setup by Janine Adams on Organize Your Family History.

*   Genealogy Videos vs. Blog Posts; a Conundrum by James Tanner on Genealogy's Star.

*  What do we Know about the Medieval Warm Period? by Wayne Shepheard on Discover Genealogy.

*  1931 Census of Canada - Initial Searchable Index by Ken MacKinlay on Family Tree Knots.

*  Your Scottish Heritage and Family Tree: What You Need To Know by Emily McFarland on Legacy Tree Genealogists.

*  The Award for Best Relationship Predictor Goes to … by Leah Larkin on The DNA Geek.

*  The Strengths and Weaknesses of Local Societies by Jacqi Stevens on A Family Tapestry.

*  Back to the Basics with Marriage Records Part 3: Church Marriage Records by Nicole Dyer on Family Locket.

Here are pick posts by other geneabloggers this week:
