Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 10 to 16 September 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: 

*  FamilySearch’s Fan Chart View Feature for Your Family Tree! by Diane Henriks on Know Who Wears the Genes In Your Family.

*  Two Jonathans? by Marcia Philbrick on Heartland Genealogy.

*  Growing Old in Genealogy by James Tanner on Genealogy's Star.

*  Must Love: Rejected Native American Tribal Applications by Kathleen Brandt on a3Genealogy.

*  Genealogy Organizing: How I Do It by Linda Stufflebean on Empty Branches on the Family Tree.

*  Yaniv Was Right by Leah Larkin on The DNA Geek.

*  Uncovering Surname Origins: Mark's Journey with FamilyTreeDNA on the FamilyTreeDNA Blog.

*  6 Reasons Why Taking an Autosomal DNA Test Can Bring New Insights Into Your Known Ancestry by Candace on Legacy Tree Genealogists.

*  Thank you, David by Judy G. Russell on The Legal Genealogist.

*  If you’re interested in genealogy, there are many ways to dive into your family history and learn more about your ancestors by Coni Dubois on Ever-Widening Circle.
