Best of the Genea-Blogs – Week of 9 to 15 May 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 one in all 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, 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 embrace summaries of them), or my very own posts.
