“Applying Evidence to Genealogical Research Questions,” by Melissa Johnson, CG®

The best approach to solving genealogical problems is to start with a strong, attainable research question. Learn about the different types of research questions, the components of a good research question, and how the research question drives the elements of the Genealogical Proof Standard.

The Board for Certification of Genealogists (BCG) in conjunction with Legacy Family Tree will present “Applying Evidence to Genealogical Research Questions” by Melissa Johnson, CG®, free to the public at 8:00 p.m. Eastern time, 19 February 2019. In order to accommodate those who might have schedule conflicts, the webinar can be accessed at no charge for a week after the broadcast.
