The Kentucky Historical Society and the
Kentucky Genealogical Society
July Family History Workshop
Saturday, July 9, 2011
10:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.
Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History
A panel dsicussion begins at 10:30 a.m. with Deborah Campisano, Roger
Futrell, Valerie Edgeworth and Betty Darnell. These experienced genealogists
will describe how they have resolved difficult family history research
hurdles and recommend strategies to help get beyond what appear to be
genealogical "dead ends."
At 12:30 p.m. Deborah Campisano discusses the genealogical proof standard.
Genealogical problems arise when historical records either do not exist or
do not directly support a clear conclusion. Learn about the accepted
standards of evidence that must be met when trying to draw a conclusion,
prove a relationship or discriminate between what information is credible
and what is not.
Registration is required before noon on Friday, July 8 for this free
workshop. A light lunch is available, if requested at time of registration,
for $6, payable at the door. Contact the Reference Desk
