Best of the Genea-Blogs: Week of 26 May to 1 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:

* Downsizing and Digitizing My Genealogy by Diana Bryan Quinn on Moments In Time, A Genealogy Blog.

* AI in Genealogy: ChatGPT-4o for Historical Photo Descriptions! By Diane Henriks on Know Who Wears the Genes In Your Family.

* How to Use Relative Finder from FamilySearch by Mercedes Brons on Who Are You Made Of?

* 5 Tips for Research When the Courthouse Burned by Diana Elder on Family Locket.

* New GeneaGem: How to Use for Genealogy by Linda Stufflebean on Empty Branches on the Family Tree.

*  Finding Where Your DNA Matches Belong Can Be Challenging by Doris Kenney on A Tree With No Name.

*  Da Blue Dots Folks by Jeff Record on The Last Aha.  

*  Just Keep Looking… by Cari Taplin on Genealogy Pants.
