Proving Parentage Two Centuries Later Using DNA Evidence - free webinar by BCG and David S. Ouimette, CG, CGL now online for limited time
Unlocking Stories of Our Female Ancestors through Effective Research Methodology - free webinar by Denyce Porter Peyton now online for limited time

Register for Webinar Wednesday: Unlocking Stories of Our Female Ancestors through Effective Research Methodology by Denyce Porter Peyton

We will explore how implementing standard research methodology may open up new avenues of discovery to unlock previously “hidden” evidence of female ancestors’ stories. Using reasonably exhaustive research, evidence correlation, analysis proof standard elements and cluster research methodology, we can uncover critical information to help us develop our female ancestors’ stories. Today’s discussion includes two case studies of females born in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. An exploration of sources, beyond census and marriage records, was required to enhance their life stories. One subject was born into an affluent family who settled in north central Tennessee, and the second was enslaved from birth until Emancipation in western Kentucky.
