Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 20 to 26 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: 

*  Ancestry’s New Right Click Feature! by Diane Henriks on Know Who Wears the Genes In Your Family.

*  Red Flags in Your Research? by Kathleen Brandt on a3Genealogy.

*  The Simple Guide to Family History Interviews by Maddy on Family Wise LTD.

*  Genealogy Tips: Not Every Burial Can Be Found by Gena Philibert-Ortega on GenealogyBank Blog.

*  Are Genealogy Blogs Still Relevant? by Marian B. Wood on Climbing My Family Tree.

*  Got DNA Results? What You Should Do First by Ellen Thompson-Jennings on Hound on the Hunt.

*  Visualization Tool Highlights a Family Tree Surprise by DiAnn Iamarino Ohana on Fortify Your Family Tree.

*  How Spoiled We've Become by Jacqi Stevens on A Family Tapestry.

*  Finding my Criswell Family in Vertical Files by Diana Bryan Quinn on Moments In Time, A Genealogy Blog.

*  MyHeritage's Reimagine Image Editing on your SmartPhone by James Tanner on Genealogy's Star.

Maude by Leah Larkin on The DNA Geek.
