About this webinar

Traditional documentation clearly identified Fayette’s father without conflict. However, the DNA results of Fayette’s descendants told a different story. Learn how DNA evidence combined with a trail of clues and the application of the Genealogical Proof Standard revealed a secret from the summer of 1913.

    I loved this presentation, but I may need to review part of it. During the presentation I momentarily got “LOST” when Charlotte Burkenshaw Bradshaw was shown with the dates (1883 – 1931) — which could NOT be possible with the dates for the children. Since I could not back up at the time, I simply made a note. Maybe there is an explanation — or a type. In any case, any clarification would be much appreciated. The explanations and research were outstanding otherwise.

    Thanks.

      Thank you, Carol. It is indeed a typo and I’ve fixed it on my end. Geoff has kindly offered to edit it on the slide. She surely could not have had children before she was born. She was born about 1841 and got married in 1865. Good catch!

    I always advise researchers to use the relationship predictions at AncestryDNA rather than the “crowd sourced” “Shared cM tool” when both the tester and match are at AncestryDNA. I suggest the “Shared cM tool” when looking at matches at other sites.

      Yes, oftentimes we’re comparing across companies and some of my data was from FTDNA, not just Ancestry. Ancestry’s estimated relationships did not exist when I did this research. Now, I usually look at both and that is what I recommend because it’s best to have all of the information we can.

    This was an excellent webinar! I especially appreciated the explanations of the step-by-step applications of the genealogy proof standards as Mrs. Zinck conducted her paper and DNA research, as well as the practical tips she provided.

    I love a good genetic genealogy “tale”, and this was beautifully presented by Jennifer. It was akin to reading one of Nathan Dylan Goodwin’s books.

    Really appreciated her attention to detail, consistent citations, and thorough explanation as she worked through the problem.
