Genealogy and Genetic Genealogy Blogs and Websites

This page is dedicated to all the genealogist and genetic genealogist blogs that share their findings to make it easier for those entering the environment or wanting to learn more.  This page will be consistently updated to assist all that visit this blog.  I hope that by sharing it will help those new to the environment.  Any questions on these blogs should be posted to the Facebook group called The African Descendant's Genetic Genealogy.  Here you will find links to blogs that will assist you in your research.  The below blogs and websites are all related to genealogy.

Some will be on genetic genealogy, ancestors from certain regions, or even on particular families.  I have provide previews so that you can easily select the blog you want to review.
