Genealogy Evidence in Wills and Probate Documents
After you view this video you will ask yourself, how do I know my records are accurate? Collecting, correctly matching evidence, compiling family units and pedigrees is genealogy. In a recent survey, 98% of genealogists questioned said they wanted their ancestors both documented and proven. What is the difference? You will learn about “slips of the tongue” evidence, family traditions, resolving discrepancies, and how to bypass record source failure—burned courthouses and lost records. You will also see special analysis tools demonstrated.
