by Angela Packer McGhie, CG, FUGA
Tuesday, January 17, 2023, 8:00 p.m. (EST)
Analyzing documents for reliability, context, and information can help solve challenging research problems. Genealogists mine documents for information and clues to other records. They evaluate the details in the records looking for evidence to answer research questions. This session will demonstrate how to analyze documents and provide a list of questions to use in your own analysis.
