Saturday, March 13
From the Source’s Mouth with Dr. Dan Hubbard  (Class)
1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Zoom Virtual Platform
 
Once we’ve understood that identities can be tricky to reconstruct, how do we piece together the tidbits of information that we find into an actual ancestor? How do we avoid putting together a great-great frankenfather from the spare parts we find in the documents we dig up? Do we trust what seems to be true, or do we look long and hard into the “source’s mouth?”
 
All classes will be presented virtually using Zoom. Registration details at http://www.wheatonlibrary.org/events/calendar
