Bucks County Genealogical Society Meeting and Presentation

www.buckscountygenealogicalsociety.org Presentation: Speaker: Date: Time: Location: “What is a ‘Reasonably Exhaustive Search’?”” Michael Hait, Certified Genealogist Saturday, May 4, 2013 10:00 to 12:00 noon David Library of the American Revolution 1201 River Road, Washington Crossing, PA

“The first condition of the Genealogical Proof Standard is to ‘complete a reasonably exhaustive search for all relevant records’ related to your research objective. This presentation discusses what a ‘reasonably exhaustive search’ constitutes, why this is necessary, and how to conduct a search. A case study explores how failing to identify all relevant records can lead to missing information and forming inaccurate conclusions about your ancestors' lives.” – Michael Hait
