Better of the Genea-Blogs – Week of 28 March to three April 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 admire 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, deal with present family tree points, present private household historical past, are humorous or are poignant. I do not checklist posts destined for every day weblog prompts or meme submissions (however I do embody summaries of them), or my very own posts.

Listed below are my picks for excellent reads from the family tree blogs for this previous week:
