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

*  Genealogy Tips: Researching Your Revolutionary War Ancestors by Katie Rebecca Garner on GenealogyBank Blog.

*  My Wish Has Come True For An Every Name Index to Deeds at FamilySearch! by Annette Kapple on AK's Genealogy Research.

*  How to Share Documents and Citations Within Your Family Tree by DiAnn Iamarino Ohana on Fortify Your Family Tree.

*  Uncovering Stories of People in Poverty by Melanie McComb on Vita Brevis.

*  What is a Descendant? by Mercedes Brons on Who Are You Made Of?

*  Using Websites’ Catalogs: Findmypast and other sites by Cari Taplin on Genealogy Pants.

*  When Grandpa Teddy Made News in 1937 by Marian B. Wood on Climbing My Family Tree.

*  Gateway Ancestors Leading to Royal and Noble Lines by Roberta Estes on DNAeXplained - Genetic Genealogy.

*  Were Ancestors Native American? by Kathleen Brandt on a3Genealogy.

*  When Did You Start Doing Genealogy? and Why? by Ellen Thompson-Jennings on Hound on the Hunt.

*  Friday Find by Marcia Philbrick on Heartland Genealogy.

*  Getting a Good Look at the Godparents by Jacqi Stevens on A Family Tapestry.
