Evaluating Genealogical Evidence with Dan Fantore

Evaluating Genealogical Evidence explores the value of the evidence that genealogical researchers uncover. Genealogical standards of evidence will be discussed. The agreement of genealogical sources is explored as well as the importance of conflicts in evidence. The importance of evaluating the strength of evidence is stressed when there are discrepancies between sources. Strengths and weaknesses of common sources (census schedules, birth and death certificates) are presented. Challenges with indices and original versus derivative sources will be discussed.
