MAKE YOUR CASE: CORRELATING EVIDENCE TO SOLVE GENEALOGICAL PROBLEMS

Are you stuck on a brick wall problem? Solutions to complex kinship and identity problems require skill in working with direct, indirect, and negative evidence. This workshop provides practical methods and hands-on experience in correlating evidence to recognize patterns, connections, and inconsistencies that will help you make your case.
