Genealogical Proof Standard helps avoid errors in research

Posted

How can researchers know if the facts they uncover about their ancestors are correct? How can they avoid attaching someone else's ancestors to their family tree? The Genealogical Proof Standard (GPS) is a guide to producing reliable research results.

“Genealogical Proof for the Everyday Genealogist,” a Castle Rock Genealogical Society program hosted via Zoom webinar, will introduce researchers to the GPS to help researchers avoid errors and frustration.

The Zoom program is from 10 a.m. to noon Tuesday, June 9; registration for the program closes at 5 p.m. Monday, June 8. Go to https://www.crcgs.org.

The program will be led by Annette Burke Lyttle, owner of Heritage Detective LLC, which provides professional genealogical services in research, education and writing. She will serve as a faculty member for “Exploring Quaker Records in America” at the Genealogical Research Institute of Pittsburgh in June and as course coordinator for “From Sea to Shining Sea: Researching Our Ancestors' Migrations in America” for the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy in January. She is a member of the board of directors of the Association of Professional Genealogists.
