Maybe the evidence you need to break a brickwall is already on your
desk, but you haven’t recognized it yet! Learn the terminology used to
evaluate genealogical records. Analyze specific cases, from
straightforward evidence to complex, indirect, and conflicting evidence.
This is a participatory class and not a laid-back lecture. The second
hour includes hands-on projects for small groups. All students will
receive a 32-page workbook.
Barbara Mathews specializes in colonial New England genealogy. She is
Verifying Genealogist for the Massachusetts Society of The Colonial
Dames of America and Genealogist for the Welles Family Association. Her
society experience includes being Program Co-Chair for NERGC 2009; an
officer in the Connecticut Professional Genealogists Council, former
President and current Civil Records C-Director for the Massachusetts
Genealogical Council; blog contributor and RPAC representative for the
Board for Certification of Genealogists, and Mentor of ProGen Study
Group 7 and GenProof Study Group 6.
Registration begins at 10:00 AM, workshop starts at 10:30 AM.
Come join us for our September Meeting!
FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
Thanks George, I have that information but failed to check it again
after I recently found that Bates' father was Ebenezer. Although that
listing shows no data for Ebenezer there are other sources now and I
think he may well be the one I am looking for. The time frame of his
father Isaac and his siblings appear to fit.
