"What is a 'Reasonably Exhaustive Search'?"
Presented by Michael Hait, CG
The first condition of the Genealogical Proof Standard is to "complete a reasonably exhaustive search for all relevant records" related to your research objective. This presentation discusses
- What is a "reasonably exhaustive search"?
- Why is it necessary?
- How do I conduct such a search?
This presentation will use a case study to explore how failing to identify and carefully consider all relevant records can lead to missing information and forming inaccurate conclusions about your ancestors' lives.
