What Are the Records Really Telling Me? Learning to Use Indirect Evidence

For many of our brick wall ancestors, there are no records about their lives that offer the direct evidence we are seeking.  In those cases, we must use indirect evidence to carefully reconstruct their identity and relationships.  Learn what indirect evidence is, how to search for it, analyze it, correlate it, and use it to prompt new research questions.  Learn to harness the power of indirect evidence to solve your most stubborn brick walls.

This webinar will be presented to the Truckee Meadows Community College Open Genealogy Lab.  The class is free and open to the public, but you need to request access by emailing Suzanne Malek at smalek@tmcc.edu.  Learn more about their program here.
