Randy Seaver &,"Finding Your Elusive Ancestors: The Genealogical Proof Standard and Performing a Reasonably Exhaustive Search."

This event is free for all to attend.

Next CVGS Saturday Workshop – 7 January 2017

The January 7th Saturday Workshop will be from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the Community Room at the Bonita-Sunnyside Library (4375 Bonita Road).

“Are you familiar with the five elements of the Genealogical Proof Standard GPS)? It deals with information, sources, evidence, analysis and proof, and was developed by the Board for Certification of Genealogists (BCG). It is the 'standard' methodology for professionals proving assertions of genealogical facts. The first element of the GPS is 'to do a reasonably exhaustive search.'

“In this presentation, Randy will explain the GPS, take a whirlwind tour through traditional and online resources that should be included in an exhaustive search, discuss his favorite search strategies and techniques, and describe a Case Study of one of his elusive ancestors that illustrates the concepts of the GPS.”

Remember we start at 1 PM when we have a  speaker and not a workshop. Thanks.. 

There is a description of it on my "Randy's Presentation" page on Genea-Musings - http://www.geneamusings.com/p/randys-presentations.html
