Genealogical research can eventually reveal conflicting records. Well-versed in teaching genealogical and family history, Dan Fantore’s Evaluating Genealogical Evidence topic explores the value of the evidence that genealogical researchers uncover. The agreement of genealogical sources is explored as well as the importance of conflicts in evidence. The importance of evaluating the strength of evidence is stressed when there are discrepancies between sources. Strengths and weaknesses of common sources (census schedules, birth and death certificates) are presented. Challenges with indices and original versus derivative sources will be discussed.
