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 “Greatest of …” are fairly easy – I decide 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 listing posts destined for day by day weblog prompts or meme submissions (however I do embody summaries of them), or my very own posts.
