Best of the Genea-Blogs – Week of 27 February to 5 March 2022

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 admire every certainly one of them and their efforts.

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