Best of the Genea-Blogs: Week of 5 to 11 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: 

*  10 Company Blogs You Shouldn’t Miss by Bob Taylor on The Family History Guide Blog.

*  What is the Furthest Anyone Has Traced Their Ancestry? by Mercedes Brons on Who Are You Made Of?

 Who Is Your Third Cousin? Gain Valuable Insight into Your Family Tree on GenealogyBank Blog.

*  Documenting Loyalists in the Family Tree: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 and Part 4 by Linda Stufflebean on Empty Branches on the Family Tree.

*  4 Practical Methods for Identifying a DNA Match by DiAnn Iamarino Ohana on Fortify Your Family Tree.

*  Finding Resources in Unexpected Places by Doris Kenney on A Tree With No Name.

*  Who Do You Believe:? The Accuracy of Inherited Genealogy by James Tanner on Genealogy's Star.

*  Missed an Entire Branch  by Jacqi Stevens on A Family Tapestry.

Here are pick posts by other geneabloggers this week:

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

*  Friday Fossicking - 10th May 2024 by Crissouli on That Moment In Time.
