Monday, 6-Oct-14 at 10:00 AM--Genealogical Proof--This class explains how to evaluate the evidence we collect as we build our family trees. Some sources are more reliable, some records bring us closer to the actual event, and some information is more “on point.” How do we rank all of this as we try to assemble genealogical “truth”? The class uses the “Genealogical Proof Standard” as the guide. Peter Summers, Local History Room, Largo Library.
Wednesday, 8-Oct-14 at 10:00 AM-4:00 PM--England & Wales Genealogy--How to access the parish records of birth/christening/marriage/burials from 1538 to 1837.
