Hunting for Henry: A Case Study Using Collaterals   (ISGS Webinars)
8:00 pm
Webinar
Presenter: Teresa Steinkamp McMillin, CG
 
Henry Steren was a German immigrant who lived in Quincy, Illinois. The United States records that were created about him indicate only that he was from the Province of Hanover in Germany. This lecture will detail how his town of origin and parents were identified, in spite of the lack of records naming him. Carefully researching each of his associates and correlating all available evidence reveals the origins of Henry. Use of the Genealogical Proof Standard is demonstrated.

Evaluating What You Have Found: The Third Stage of Research  (ISGS Webinars)
8:00 pm
Webinar
Presenter: Barbara Renick
 
Just because it is in print (in a courthouse record, a county history, a family history book, or published online) doesn't make it so. All too often we find tantalizing bits and pieces of our family trees in various sources. It takes knowledge and experience to carefully evaluate what you have found and to determine when further research and documentation is necessary. This lecture covers the evaluation of both compiled and original sources.
