Best of the Genea-Blogs – 24 to 30 October 2021

 Scores of family tree and household historical past bloggers write hundreds of posts each week about their analysis, their households, and their pursuits. I recognize every certainly one of them and their efforts.

My standards for “Finest of …” are fairly easy – I decide posts that advance data about family tree and household historical past, deal with present family tree points, present private household historical past, are humorous or are poignant. I do not record posts destined for every day weblog prompts or meme submissions (however I do embrace summaries of them), or my very own posts.

Listed here are my picks for excellent reads from the family tree blogs for this previous week:
