Wow! Great webinars continue to come from Legacy Family Tree Webinars!
Since I've already spent the first part of my genealogical endeavors gathering all the low hanging fruit, it is important to keep buckling down and analyzing what I already have, and stop going on wild goose chases. Shellee Morehead, PhD, CC, conducts this advanced level webinar, "Another Kind of Navigation: GPS for Genealogy," using all the reasoning needed to come to believable conclusions:
This lecture describes the 5 steps of the Genealogical Proof Standard to establish proof of identities and relationships. Shellee will present examples at each step, along with a case study of a complex problem that was solved with research, creativity, attention to detail and a defined process. See how reasonably exhaustive research, accurate citations, analysis and correlation of data, the resolution of conflicting data and a reasoned, written conclusion was used to identify the parents of a Civil War soldier who shaved 10 years off his age and complicated the search for this relationship.This is really what I need to be doing from here on out. Well, that and diligently keeping a daily research log.
This webinar is hosted and sponsored by the Board for Certification of Genealogists.
The webinar was originally recorded on August 16, 2016 (1 hour, 30 minutes), and is free for non-subscribers through August 23, 2016..
Most of Legacy Family Tree Webinars are not free and I recommend subscribing to their site for full access to all their amazing, affordable genealogy webinars.
