Life is good when records with direct evidence exists. Typically that doesn’t last long. At some point, one finds only bits and pieces of indirect or conflicting evidence and progress often comes to a screeching halt. This class examines a case study prepared for application to the Board for Certification of Genealogists (BCG) where direct evidence was non-existent in identifying the family of Jesse Roberts of Greenville County, South Carolina. Key strategies are presented to piece together strands and threads of evidence from disparate sources using the Genealogical Proof Standard.
The Board for Certification of Genealogists (BCG) will present “GPS: Finding Your Way Through Tough Research Problems” by James Ison, AG® free to the public at 8:00 p.m. EDT, 21 August 2018.Jim Ison worked as a manager at FamilySearch for 12 years.
