Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 8 to 14 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: 

 Back to the Basics with Immigration Records: Part 2 – Colonial Era by Diana Elder on Family Locket.

*  The National Library of Ireland by Donna Moughty on Irish Family Roots.

*  Genealogy Jamboree 2023: A Genealogical Learning Packed Weekend! by Diane Henriks on Know Who Wears the Genes In Your Family.

Reclaim the Records: A Million New Records from Missouri by James Tanner on Genealogy's Star.

*  Family Statistics From MyHeritage Offers a Unique Way to Improve Your Tree by Pat Hartley on Family History Daily.
