Best of the Genea-Blogs -- Week of 28 May to 3 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:

 Introducing Reimagine: An Innovative Photo App by MyHeritage by Erica on MyHeritage Blog.

*  These DNA Sites Expand Your Tree in New Directions by DiAnn Iamarino Ohana on Fortify Your Family Tree.

*  Don’t be Fooled by Ethnicity by Kitty Cooper on Kitty Cooper's Blog.

*  Having a Good Research Question by Cari Taplin on Genealogy Pants.

*  Alternatives to Genealogy Software Source Citations by Linda Stufflebean on Empty Branches on the Family Tree.

 Digitizing Multiple Photos with Reimagine by Marian B. Wood on Climbing My Family Tree.

*  Prep work for the 1931 Canada census by Teresa on Writing My Past.

*   It's 1931 Canada Census Release Day by John D. Reid on Anglo-Celtic Connections.

*  Using the Shared cM Project in Reverse by Jim Bartlett on Segment-ology.

*  Getting Familiar with Family at MyHeritage DNA by Adrienne on Legacy Tree Genealogists.

*  Part Two: MyHeritage DNA Theories of Family Relativity by Paul Woodbury on Legacy Tree Genealogists.

*  1931 Census of Canada - Success Stories by Ken MacKinlay on Family Tree Knots.

Here are pick posts by other geneabloggers this week:
