The speaker will discuss how to analyze record types (original, derivative and authored), record information (primary, secondary and indeterminate), and evidence (direct, indirect and negative), and how to weight the reliability of the documents you find based on these criteria. Together we will analyze examples of actual records and show how to ask the right questions to help us create sound genealogical research.
