Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 2 to 8 June 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:

* Unlocking the Potential of Chat GPT-4 Omni in Genealogy by Coach Carole on The Essential Genealogist.

* AI in Genealogy: ChatGPT-4o for Perfect Obituary Transcriptions and Analysis! By Diane Henriks on Know Who Wears the Genes In Your Family.
