Evidence Analysis Webinar Available Online

I attended a live webinar last Saturday with Karen Clifford, AG speaking on "Evidence Analysis." Karen was speaking live at the ICAPGen (International Commission for the Accreditation of Professional Genealogists) annual seminar in Salt Lake City, Utah, and simultaneously to a live online webinar audience hosted by Legacy Family Tree. I thought this presentation was excellent, and fortunately is is archived and available for others to view on the Legacy archived webinars page.

Karen was speaking to an ICAPGen conference audience, and some of her remarks were geared toward the 3 hour ICAPGen examination, but her ideas are not limited to that situation. She shared useful suggestions emphasizing analysis of documents and evidence throughout the research process. Karen covers terminology and then gives a case study illustrating how to apply the techniques she suggests. Her process includes elements such as analyzing the problem, organizing your data, brainstorming steps to a solution, conducting the research, recording your sources, comparing records, reaching a conclusion, and explaining your proof.

In this webinar you will hear Karen's voice and see her power point slides. This presentation is one hour eleven minutes long, and will be online until November 23, 2010. I suggest that you take time to view it while it is available.
