Inferential Genealogy

Lesson Supplements



This class explains how family historians can accurately deduce ancestors’ identities and many aspects of their lives by digging below “surface information” in genealogical records and combining information from several sources. Useful in many situations, inferential methodology is especially helpful where records do not state relationships.

Because of extensive multimedia, this course is best viewed on a higher bandwidth internet connection.
