Dr. Thomas W. Jones will be presenting four topics:

  • Debunking Misleading Record”– genealogical sources of all kinds contain errors, both accidental and intentional, that mislead. Standard tests will expose the errors, enabling researchers to deduce correct conclusions.
  • “Going Beyond the Bare Bones: Reconstructing Your Ancestor’s Lives” learn how to extract information from frequently used genealogical sources to create biographies that bring ancestors to life.
  • “Solving the Mystery of the Disappearing Ancestor”– Are you not finding ancestors in the records and places where you logically expect them to be? This presentation will explain seven reasons why such ancestors seem to have disappeared. Examples of each from actual case studies, and suggest strategies to help find their elusive ancestor!
  • Will Your Genealogical History have Lasting Value?”-learn how to create irreplaceable family histories, collect family stories and DNA, share those results, and publish family compilations with four characteristics–biorgraphy, accuracy, documentation and explanation.
