Transcribing Documents: There Is More Than Meets the Eye
25 September 2019 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm MDT
The first component of the Genealogical Proof Standard is the conduct of reasonably exhaustive research, preferably using original records. Especially for periods before the 20th century, the emphasis on original sources will require the transcription of handwritten records as the first step in analyzing a record’s content. Using a variety of documents, this course will cover selected Genealogy Standards, including those relating to the accuracy, completeness, and analysis of background context of a document.
