The Family Tapestry: Integrating Proof Arguments into the Genealogical Narrative
Wednesday, December 6
The Family Tapestry: Integrating Proof Arguments into the Genealogical Narrative  (Webinars)
7:00 pm to 8:15 pm
Description: As family researchers we often encounter problems. There can be conflicting information about identity, dates, and places. We encounter situations where no one document clearly shows a parent-child relationship. We need to use multiple documents that, after thoughtful analysis, lead us to a conclusion. After a reasonably exhaustive research, we must assemble the evidence into a proof argument. We must successfully weave these proof arguments into the family tapestry.
Presenter: Jeanne Larzalere Bloom, CG(sm), is a full-time professional researcher specializing in Chicago and Cook County research, forensic genealogy, problem solving, and multi-generational family histories. On behalf of the Department of the Army, Jeanne searches for and identifies family members of unaccounted for servicemen from World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. Jeanne writes articles for scholarly journals and society publications. She is a frequent lecturer at  conferences, workshops, and institutes.She is a Trustee and the president of the Board for Certification of Genealogists.
