Webinar—What am I missing? Recognizing Research Holes in Available Sources
October 8 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
2021 Joy Reisinger Memorial Lecture Series
Performing reasonably exhaustive research assumes researchers recognize the resources available to solve a research question. Genealogists must recognize pertinent resources available to solve a research question and understand the limits of each of those resources. This lecture helps researchers learn how to navigate the pitfalls.
