Program:  Unreliable Records: Don't Believe Everything You Read!
The genealogy records we rely upon can be incorrect for a variety of reasons.  Here’s a lighthearted look at some examples Kathleen has found while researching her family tree.  Let’s laugh at the confusion that unreliable records may cause!  And then talk about the importance of “reasonably exhaustive research” and "resolving conflicting evidence”
