Webinar, Genealogy Evidence and Online Family Trees by Karen Clifford

Is it possible for two people to do the same genealogical research and find different answers? It is! Disagreement of the evidence can be confusing and cause problems. Learn to properly use the tools of online family trees to sort the evidence that supports your genealogical assertions.
