Zoom Workshop : Errors, Lies and Misinformation
Leader: David Cufley
A workshop discussing errors in official records and commercial search engines and how to try and spot them. Case studies will be used as part of the discussions.
Do you believe what your ancestors told officials and their families?
Do you believe what other researchers tell you, how good is their research?
Are transcriptions accurate and do the indexes reflect the original documents?
Mark Twain said if you don’t read the newspaper, you’re uninformed. If you read the newspaper you’re misinformed. You could apply this to family history documents. This workshop will give you the tools to avoid researching someone else’s family as yours.
