Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 17 to 23 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: 

Keeping on Track With D N A by Jacqi Stevens on A Family Tapestry.

*  The Deserter’s Tale by Nathan Dylan Goodwin: Book Review by Linda Stufflebean on Empty Branches on the Family Tree.

DNA Suggests Merge by Marcia Philbrick on Heartland Genealogy.

*  Ancestry’s annual rules update 2023 by Judy G. Russell on The Legal Genealogist.

*  Some Practical Predictions About the Future of Genealogy by James Tanner on Genealogy's Star.

*  4 Levels of Cemetery and Headstone Research for Genealogy by Melissa on Legacy  Tree Genealogists.

*  Genetic Road Maps by Jacqi Stevens on A Family Tapestry.

*  From Settlement to Independence: A Complete Guide through the Colonial America Timeline on the GenealogyBank Blog.

*   Have You Helped Someone With Their Genealogy? by Ellen Thompson-Jennings on Hound on the Hunt.

Here are pick posts by other geneabloggers this week:

*  Friday's Family History Finds by Linda Stufflebean on Empty Branches on the Family Tree.

*  Friday Fossicking 22nd Sept 2023 by Crissoulli on That Moment In Time.

*  This Week's Creme de la  Creme - September 23, 2023 by Gail Dever on Genealogy a la Carte.

Thank you for including my review of Nathan's newest book. He did a great job revealing more about the life of Morton Farrier, our favorite forensic genealogist, and his family.
