A Case Study Proving Oral History

by Dr. Deborah Abbott

This lecture will ask attendees to put on their "CSI" hat and utilize their "Detective" skills to solve a series of questions that will bring a family to life.  Using oral history, together, we will identify and describe the scope of the problem and determine what additional research is needed to answer the questions.  We will identify what we know to be fact and the resources that support the facts.  We will learn the importance of carefully analyzing documents and determining clues that will lead us to alternative resources.  The importance of using collateral and cluster genealogical methods will be emphasized.
