There is no way to be entirely certain a tree is one hundred percent correct. Ever. Humans will make errors. However there are some ways to reduce the number of errors in your tree, creating a more accurate tree for future generations and reducing the chance you create more brick walls for yourself in the process. This presentation is aimed at those who have been researching their genealogy for a while and would not consider themselves experts but are no longer real beginners either.
This discussion will concentrate on:
- determining when to enter information into a database and when not to
- the elements of proof and evidence–with suggested ways to learn more
- responsible use of online trees for clues
- avoiding common and not-so-common errors
- why it is not the number of sources that matter
- finding it on 1,000 trees does not make it true
- additional ways to improve your research skills
