Learning by Example - Case Studies Using Indirect Evidence  (Classes)
10:00 am to 12:00 pm
Often the answers to our genealogical questions are not presented to us in a straight forward way. Then we have to search further afield and analyze the information we find to ferret out the answer. This presentation will look at several examples of using indirect evidence to find an answer and in two cases to disprove a direct incorrect answer.

Questions answered: What is in a military record? Where are these records, and how can I get them?
