How to Analyze Genealogical Evidence: Separating Fact From Fiction  (Genealogy - Library Workshops)
9:30 am to 12:15 pm
Fort Myers Regional Library, South Building Meeting Rooms A-B, 1651 Lee Street, Fort Myers
Speaker:  Bryan Mulcahy, Reference Librarian, Fort Myers Regional Library
 
Genealogists accumulate significant amounts of information as they proceed through the research process.  While it may prove to be accurate to varying degrees, some may be fabrication.  With the volume of digitized resources growing each year, our rapid access to original genealogical records online may flood us with more information than we can handle. It is critical that researchers take the time to carefully analyze all the evidence content for clues implied or suggested.  Failure to do so may result in missing critical details.  This seminar will discuss various techniques to overcome this challenge.
 
 
All programs are free and open to the public.  Advance Registration is required.  Patrons may register for the classes using one of the following methods:
  1. Telephone:  Call 479-4636 and select the option for registering for programs.
