Part Number: W8LOGICDED_

Price: $9.95
Correlation of facts, along with explaining conflicting evidence is part of the genealogical proof standard. Learn tools and see examples of how to do it. Correlation and analysis, as well as explaining inconsistencies in our research, are critical in the application of the Genealogical Proof Standard. But how do we do it, and what sorts of tools can we use to make sure that our data is the best we can find? In this lecture, we will discuss the genealogical proof standard as well as delve into documentary evidence that needs to be explained. Using one 19th century example, I use time lines, associates, various vital records, and unpublished journals to correctly place individuals in to families. In a 20th century example, I show how only careful analysis of information, including oral family history, can identify the one official record among many that provides a woman’s true name. Different tools and explicit logic and deduction can help us arrive at solid genealogical conclusions regarding identity and relationship.

We will discuss history, migration, essential clues (customs, food, terminology, languages), and much more.

Part Number: W8LRORPS_

Price: $9.95
Many people just don't understand what tools they have available to them when it comes to editing photos. Within Adobe's Creative Suite, there are two programs designed specifically with photographers in mind: Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom. At first glance, these two programs might appear redundant, as they're both made with the goal of editing photographs of all kinds. But the truth is, each program is designed with a different purpose in mind, and each offers a distinct post-production photography workflow. My webinar will breakdown why you should choose one over the other and why both of them are important to know and use.

Part Number: W8MAPSGRES_

Price: $9.95
Every ancestor, at every moment, occupied a specific, physical location. Maps decode and amplify the significance of those locations by providing context and background information. This heavily illustrated lecture shows examples of the map types best-suited to genealogy, and the syllabus provides links to quality online sources for those maps.
Because maps are visual they can often make a place more vivid and show our ancestors' lives in new ways. For example, maps show the land's fertility (soil map), the waterways (physical map), the closest courthouse (political map) and the neighboring farm's owner (cadastral map). Specialized maps can document battle history, locations of teen mothers, oceanic shipping routes, Chicago before and after the fire, and Africa's real size, to name only a few.
Maps, and other geographical tools, help with identify or relationship questions by augmenting or even starring in proof discussions. Proofs and case studies which relied on map evidence in rural and urban settings will be dissected and explained.

Part Number: W8OLDSTYLH_

Price: $9.95
Genealogical researchers love old records, family bibles, baptismal certificates, and census pages. Transcribing a will or a deed can be a daunting task, especially when the writing instruments are pre-1800. Cursive handwriting from the 1600's up to the 1900's is often a challenge. Knowing a few tips to decipher names, a word that doesn't make sense, or a troublesome abbreviation makes reading old documents a lot easier.
