BCG offers free monthly webinar on Tuesday, August 16, 2022, at 8:00 p.m. EDT.

Traditional documentation clearly identified Fayette’s father without conflict. However, the DNA results of Fayette’s descendants told a different story. Learn how DNA evidence combined with a trail of clues and the application of the Genealogical Proof Standard revealed a secret from the summer of 1913.
