This course focuses on helping the genealogist verify information correctly, and to determine, when there is conflicting information, what sources are really correct. It unmasks fraudulent genealogies published long ago as well as helping the genealogist to know the correct usage of sources. Prerequisite: None.

Required Textbook: Professional Genealogy, edited by Elizabeth Shown Mills and Structural and Functional Genealogical Research by Jeanette K B Daniels.  The latter has not yet been published and the necessary parts of that book have been added into the course.
