Finding a record about your ancestor is just the beginning. Records and the information they contain should be analyzed with a critical eye. This process of questioning, comparing, and reasoning will result in gleaning more evidence from each source and in a better understanding of the reliability of the information you find. This is where you put on your detective hat and pull out the magnifying glass to become a genealogy sleuth. Classes are limited to 15 students each. Will be held in the Library Conference Room.
