About this webinar

What happens when the indirect evidence of a death occurring and a probate record don’t agree? The research begins in earnest! That’s what happened in the case of the death of Antoine/Anthony Lallament of Mobile, Alabama. Who is Antoine and what relationship is he to me? When did he actually die? Which record is correct? What would other available records reveal? How is the explosion of the Steamer Kate involved? We have more questions than answers. This case study provides the research methodology involved in solving this problem.

    Wow — Now I need to “go back to the drawing board” for at least three of my ancestors! Thank you Ann.

    Excellent. The researcher just kept on digging and exploring more records until she finally found proof. This is an example for us all.

    It was an interesting research question, considering how much stock we put in probate records. I loved the twist of evidence at the end, like a well written novel!

    As I was starting to type questions, she was already answering them. Ann must have precog for her audiences. 🙂 Great case study!
