Best of the Genea-Blogs: Week of 28 April to 4 May 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: 

*  How To Create Diagrams and Charts for Genetic Genealogy Research by Paul Woodbury on Legacy Tree Genealogists.

*  Ten Family History Bloggers You Should Know by Bob Taylor on The Family History Guide Blog.

*  Leaving the Past for the Future 6: The importance of maps by Wayne Shepheard on Discover Genealogy.

 2 Free Websites Compare Photos to See Who's Who by DiAnn Iamarino Ohana on Fortify Your Family Tree.

*  New GeneaGem: Do You use NUCMC for Genealogy? by Linda Stufflebean on Empty Branches on the Family Tree.

*  23andMe Historical Matches: A New Feature for 23andMe+ Premium by Melanie Mohler on Your DNA Guide.

*  How to Use Chronicling America Version 2.0 by Kenneth Marks on The Ancestor Hunt.

*  Shuffle Off to Baltimore by Jeff Record on The Last Aha.
