“When Does Newfound Evidence Overturn a Proved Conclusion?”
by Tom Jones, PhD, CG, CGL

Even thorough research can miss relevant sources. What are the options when useful information or DNA test results appear after a researcher establishes a conclusion?

The Board for Certification of Genealogists (BCG) will present “When Does Newfound Evidence Overturn a Proved Conclusion?” by Tom Jones, PhD, CG, CGL free to the public at 8:00 p.m. EDT, 19 September 2017.

Tom has been pursuing his ancestry since 1963. For the first twenty-five years he was clueless about what he was trying to accomplish and how to do it. When he started climbing the genealogy learning curve he repeatedly experienced the challenges, joys, and rewards of tracing ancestors reliably and fully understanding their lives. Tom eventually became an award-winning writer, board-certified genealogist, editor of the National Genealogical Society Quarterly, recipient of honors from genealogical organizations, and author of the textbook Mastering Genealogical Proof. Using his nearly lifelong teaching career as a springboard, he enjoys teaching at week-long genealogy institutes, weekend seminars, and local, national, and international genealogy conferences.

President Jeanne Larzalere Bloom, CG, says, “The Board for Certification of Genealogists is proud to offer this new webinar as part of an ongoing series that supports our mission to provide education for family historians. This webinar will address genealogy standards for research. By promoting a uniform standard of competence and ethics BCG endeavors to foster public confidence in genealogy.”
