Session 2: Filling in the blanks.
Pedigree analysis will aid us in deciding where we need to go next. Following many recommendations from Tom Jones' Mastering Genealogical Proof, we will focus on asking a genealogical question and setting a goal. Citing sources and learning to keep a research log will be emphasized. Time will also be spent on the value of maps.
"Genealogy is an adventure in researching your family's history. These sessions will aid the beginner in starting the process and enjoying the journey."
