Indirect Evidence – A Case Study - free webinar by Pauline C. Merrick now online for limited time


The recording of today's webinar by Pauline C. Merrick, "Indirect Evidence – A Case Study" is now available to view at for free for a limited time.

Webinar Description

This Connecticut-based, indirect evidence case study will highlight techniques for researching a woman whose maiden name is known, but her parents are unknown due to deficiencies in the vital records. Techniques will be demonstrated that rely on forming hypotheses and gathering evidence to test those hypotheses. Thorough research of neighbors and associates (the FAN principle) will yield enough evidence to tie this woman back into her family. Records used include pre-1850 census records, deeds, probate, church, and court. Death records of family members provide the final clues that tie them all together.
