Best of the Genea-Blogs – 26 September to 2 October 2021

Scores of family tree and household historical past bloggers write 1000’s of posts each week about their analysis, their households, and their pursuits. I respect every considered one of them and their efforts.

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