Title: Principles of Effective Evidence Analysis
Date: Tuesday, November 8, 2016, 8:00 pm Central
Description:Evidence comes in many forms and with varying amounts of content. This lecture focuses on studying evidence for reliable and less-than-reliable information. It begins with a discussion of types of source materials - original vs. derivative - and the differences between primary and secondary information, and goes on to address mixed content on sources. Print vs. electronic media are considered throughout, and evaluation of source citations to determine evidence weight and reliability is stressed.
Presenter: George G. Morgan
George is the prolific award-winning author of hundreds of articles for magazines, journals, newsletters, in genealogical publications, and at online sites internationally. His twelfth book, the fourth edition How to Do Everything: Genealogy, was released in January 2015.
Registration Procedure: There are only 500 available "seats" for each webinar and we have limited the number of registrations for each webinar to 650. Past experience has shown that approximately 30% of those who register don't attend a webinar.
Recommendation: login to the webinar EARLY - access begins at 7:30 pm Central. Once the "room" fills up with 500 attendees, others attempting to join will receive a "room full" message.
