One of the elements of the Genealogical Proof Standard is analyzing your information and documentation and correlating it with other known facts. Does the research trail end when you can’t find the family?
This is an advanced-level class presenting a case study that was used in a First Families of Ohio application. It particularly drills deeper into census research when an ancestor was supposedly missed. By correlating the missing information with known information of the time period, a new family story emerges.
