On Thursday, June 10, the Fox Valley Genealogical Society will present “The Standard of Genealogical Proof: Put the Power of GPS to Work!” With Alice Hoyt Veen.
The webinar will take place from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. online. Register on ilfvgs.org/education/programs/.
Producing a reliable, high-quality genealogy for your family requires thought and thoroughness during the research process.
Testing your work against recognized standards helps you achieve your goals. This introduction to the standard of genealogical proof examines the development of modern standards, their importance to all genealogists, and how anyone, regardless of their level of experience, can effectively apply these common sense standards and techniques to their family project.
