About this webinar

Sooner or later, every family researcher comes across information that conflicts with what was found earlier – a date, a name, a place. How can the conflict be resolved, and if it cannot, what to do?

    It is so helpful to see the examples of found conflicting records, then to hear all the thought processes behind the decisions that are mde.

    Liz did such a great job of crafting and delivering this webinar, especially in choosing an interesting and not overly complex case to highlight conflicting evidence and resolve it when possible. Although I was already familiar with most of the issues and methodology presented, I found it a good review and picked up some new ideas. I also agree with other participants who liked the pace of her presentation; it provided time to absorb and think about the points made. I’d love to see more webinars from her!

    Thank you for giving me some hope about some of my ancestors. Finding things that are contradictory have been somewhat frustrating to me. Thank you for letting us basically have an out by annotating this could be it one date, but it could be another. I am also grateful for digitization. This allows a lot of us researchers who are sort of new to be able to find records and not travel to Timbuktu to find them. Thank you so much for this webinar.
