Genealogical Proof for the Everyday Genealogist  (Class)
10:00 am to 12:00 pm
Zoom Webinar
Presented by Annette Burke Lyttle
How do we know if the facts we’ve uncovered about our ancestors are correct? How do we avoid attaching somebody else’s ancestors to our family tree? The Genealogical Proof Standard (GPS) is our guide to producing reliable research results. This introduction to the Genealogical Proof Standard will get your research moving in the right direction and help you avoid errors and frustration.
