Best of the Genea-Blogs: Week of 21 to 27 April 2024

  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 most 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: 

*  AI & Genealogy: Gemini HTR for Parish Record Transcription and Analysis! by Diane Henriks on Know Who Wears the Genes In Your Family.

*  Artifacts + Context = Family History Story  by Marian B. Wood on Climbing My Family Tree.

*  Evaluating Double Cousin Relationships with Banyan DNA by Diana Elder on Family Locket.

*  2 Free Tools Can Read Document Images for You by DiAnn Iamarino Ohana on Fortify Your Family Tree.

*  Multitasking in Genealogy: Why Focused Research Yields Better Results by Ellen Thompson-Jennings on Hound on the Hunt.

*  Finding Your Ancestor’s Church by Alice Childs on Genealogy Now.

*  Telling Your Life Story in Bullet Points by Gena Philibert-Ortega on Legacy News.

*  Until You Know That You Know by Jacqi Stevens on A Family Tapestry.

*  Perplexed but Learning by Marcia Crawford Philbrick on Heartland Genealogy.

*  Ask Yvette – How do I find all the children? by Yvette Hoitink on Dutch Genealogy.

Here are pick posts by other geneabloggers this week:

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