Genealogists seek direct evidence – evidence that states facts in a linear fashion, such as John Jones was the father of George Jones. Too often, we have to build our case using several pieces of indirect evidence. But direct evidence can be wrong! This lecture will present examples of records that were wrong, explore techniques for evaluating evidence for reliability, and suggest ways to explain, or present, incorrect records and information in written family history.
For more information, see the Family History Month brochure.
