Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 18 to 24 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:

*  Identifying False Shared DNA Segments by Jim Bartlett on Segment-ology.

*  6 Steps for Applying the Scientific Method to Genetic Genealogy by Robert  Stieglitz on Family Tree Magazine.

*  MyHeritage’s App – Reimagine by Ellen Thompson-Jennings on Hound on the Hunt.

*  Questions by Marcia Philbrick on Heartland Genealogy.

*  I Finally Found Ellen or, Transcribers Don't Get the Last Word by Ellie on Ellie's Ancestors.

*  My re-tooled DNA Tools page by Jonny Perl on DNA Painter Blog.

*  How I use AI in my work by Yvette Hoitink on Dutch Genealogy.

*  The End of GenSoftReviews by Louis Kessler on Behold Genealogy.

*  Checking in: A Few Thoughts on Various Genealogy Topics by Marie Cooke Beckman on MarieB's Genealogy Blog.

*  What Did Mom Know About Family History? by Marian B. Wood on Climbing My Family Tree.

*  Invitation to Connect by Jacqi Stevens on A Family Tapestry.

*  How to Unmerge People of the Same Name on the FamilySearch Family Tree by Nicole Dyer 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 23rd June 2023 by Crissoulli on That Moment In Time.

* This Week's Creme de la Creme - June 24, 2023 by Gail Dever on Genealogy a la Carte.

Randy, thanks for sharing my post today! I'm hoping this signals a new development in families sharing in learning more about their own family history.
