Best of the Genea-Blogs – Week of 4 to 10 July 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 admire every considered one of them and their efforts.

My standards for “Greatest of …” are fairly easy – I choose posts that advance information 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 record posts destined for every day weblog prompts or meme submissions (however I do embrace summaries of them), or my very own posts.
