Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 25 June to 1 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:

*  Elusive Ancestor Research Tips and Hints by Kathleen Brandt on A3Genealogy.

*  Bringing Him Home by Paul Chiddicks on The Chiddicks Family Tree.

*  How to Use Social Media for Genealogists by Maddy on Family Wise.

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

*  DNA Q&A: What Exactly Is a Segment? by Diahan Southard on Family Tree Magazine.

Ancestor Project by Marcia C. Philbrick on Heartland Genealogy.
