Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 24 to 30 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: 

 Inside My Family History Photo Books by Marian B. Wood on Climbing My Family Tree.

*  Recasting a question gets a better answer by James Beidler on Roots & Branches.

*  Unlocking the Secrets of Our Ancestors: Harnessing Determination, Courage, and Resilience for Achieving the Impossible by Coni Dubois on Ever Widening Circle.

*  William C. Gleeson’s Death Certificate and the Cause of Death by Lisa S. Gorrell on My Trails Into the Past.

*  How to Use DNA Matches to Go Beyond Vital Records by Diann Iamarino Ohana on Fortify Your Family Tree.
