The Family Tapestry: Integrating Proof Arguments into the Genealogical Narrative
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.
