Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 27 August to 2 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: 

*  Fact or Fiction? A Revolutionary War soldier talked to a boy, who became a Civil War soldier by Kelly Wheaton on Wheaton Wood.

*  A Family Auction One Hundred Years Ago Today by Pamela Athearn Filbert on Vita Brevis.

*  How To Keep Your Matches Organized by Ellen Thompson-Jennings on Hound on the Hunt.

*  A Sister's Death Certificate Furthers Ancestor's Research by Brenda Leyndyke on Journey to the Past.

*  Introducing Y-DNA Haplogroups for Family Finder Customers by Katy Rowe on FamilyTreeDNA Blog.

*  Using Adobe Photoshop BETA, Adobe Phoshop and and Reimagine to repair a photo by James Tanner on Genealogy's Star.
