Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 13 to 19 August 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 PhotoDater™, an Exclusive, Free New Feature to Estimate When Old Photos Were Taken by Erica on MyHeritage Blog.

*  Finding Lucy: When Pieces of Indirect Evidence Add Up by Melvin Collier on Roots Revealed.

*  Genealogy Tip: DNA Inheritance Explained by Katie Rebecca Garner on GenealogyBank Blog.

*  Digging Into a DNA Match's Family Tree by DiAnn Iamarino Ohana on Fortify Your Family Tree.

*  Introduction to County Courthouse Research by Denys Allen on PA Ancestors.

*  Webtember 2023: All Genealogy. All September Long. Sign up today (free). by Geoff Rasmussen on Legacy News.

*  3 Essential Websites for Exploring German Parish Records by Shelbie on Legacy Tree Genealogists.

*  Genealogy Software Like a Pro: Expert Tips for Entering Data  by Rick Crume on Family Tree Magazine.

 Exploring New Tools at Living DNA: Chromosome Browser and Matchbox by Diana Elder on Family Locket.

*  No deeds, indeed! by Judy G. Russell on The Legal Genealogist.

Here are pick posts by other geneabloggers this week:
