"Inferential Genealogy: Deducing Ancestors' Identities Indirectly"
ABOUT THE PRESENTATION
Participants will learn how to accurately deduce ancestors' identities and many aspects of their lives by digging below "surface information" in genealogical records and by combining information from several sources.
ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Tom, who has edited the National Genealogical Society Quarterly since 2002, wrote the popular textbook Mastering Genealogical Proof. He started tracing his family history in 1963 and now works full-time as a genealogical researcher, writer, editor, and teacher. He teaches week-long genealogy courses at GRIP, IGHR, and SLIG. Audiences typically leave his lectures understanding that genealogical research can be more challenging than they had thought, but also that it can be much more fun.
A handout will be available shortly before the presentation. A link will be included in a reminder that will be sent the day before the session.
