November 2014 Webinar – Evaluating What You Have Found: The Third Stage of Research

[ISGS Webinar Logo-Small for Webinar Branding

Join us on November 11, for Evaluating What You Have Found: The Third Stage of Research with Barbara Renick, where you will learn about the importance of studying an ancestor's associates can help solve a genealogical mystery.

Date: Tuesday, November 11, 2014, 8:00 pm Central

Description: Just because it is in print (in a courthouse record, a county history, a family history book, or published online) doesn't make it so. All too often we find tantalizing bits and pieces of our family trees in various sources. It takes knowledge and experience to carefully evaluate what you have found and to determine when further research and documentation is necessary. This lecture covers the evaluation of both compiled and original sources.

Presenter: Barbara Renick
