– Writing a Family Sketch with Strong Kinship Conclusions.
 
- This presentation will provide some starting ideas and early steps on the process of writing your own family history. The speaker will describe the types of family histories, how to develop a story structure, and how to apply proof arguments statements. Bob is a Professional Genealogist based in Madison. After he discovered a box of old family photos in his paternal grandparent’s house, he became interested in his family’s history. That summer, over 40 years, his interest in the subject of genealogy also began. He specializes in German-American research but also work in all types of U.S. record sources and databases. Bob has also worked on two research projects with the TV series “Who Do You Think You Are?” Season 9 (2017), episode 5.

– The Ethical Genealogist:
 
Genealogists deal with sensitive issues all the time: how to handle family secrets, what to say about living people, crediting the work of others. Learn more about the ethical challenges of trying to solve family history mysteries in the 21st century. The mission for The Legal Genealogist “in part, is to help folks understand the often arcane and even impenetrable legal concepts and terminology that are so very important to those of us studying family history. Without understanding the context in which events took place and records were created, we miss so much of both the significance and the flavor of what happened.”
