Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 15 to 21 October 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: 

*  We All Carry Inside Us The People Who Came Before Us  by Paul Chiddicks on The Chiddicks Family Tree.

*  How to Bust a Brick Wall When You're Too Busy for Genealogy by Jennifer Dondero on The Occasional Genealogist.

*  When Your Kids Won't Take Their Stuff: Make a Book by Brenda Leyndyke on Journey to the Past.

*  Finding a Final Resting Place by Jacqi Stevens on A Family Tapestry.

*  Sourcing Events by Marcia Philbrick on Heartland Genealogy.

*   Family History as News: Don't Bury the Lede Marian B. Wood on Climbing My Family Tree.

*  Back to the Basics with Immigration Records: Part 3 1820-1906 by Diana Elder on Family Locket.

*  Challenges of the Family Tree, Now and in the Future by James Tanner on Genealogy's Star.

*  “One” and Genealogy by Linda Stufflebean on Empty Branches on the Family Tree.

*  Automated Source Citation Builders by Nicole Dyer on Family Locket.

*  The Acadian Deportation: Tips for tracing ancestors forcibly removed from New France by Michelle on Legacy Tree Genealogists.

*  Finding the Seeds of a Story in Your Research by Lynn Palermo on The Family History Writing Studio.

*  Don’t Make These Genealogy Mistakes! by Linda Stufflebean on Empty Branches on the Family Tree.

Here are pick posts by other geneabloggers this week:
