“Sources and Documentation”, by Larry Dodge

Sep 16 Topic:  Sources and Documentation, by Larry Dodge

One of the biggest mistakes genealogists make is failing to source our material.  With hundreds or even thousands of names in our genealogy, we wind up with tens of thousands of dates, places and relationships.  Good sources add to the validity of each and every piece of information. Learn how to create a good source, how to use it to justify your facts and conclusions and then how to connect individuals into families and a pedigree.
