What Am I Missing? Recognizing Research Holes in Available Resources
7:00 pm to 8:00 pm
LIVE WEBINAR
 
Guest Speaker:  Patti Lee Hobbs, CG
 
Description: Performing reasonably exhaustive research assumes researchers recognize the resources available to solve a research question. Excellent researchers also must understand the limits of each of those resources. This lecture helps to navigate the pitfalls.
 
Presenter Info:  Patti Lee Hobbs, CG, who resides in rural southwest Missouri, is blessed to have ancestors from many geographical locations leading to research in many and varied repositories. She serves on the editorial board for the National Genealogical Society Quarterly and is trustee for both the Board for Certification of Genealogists and the BCG Education Fund. Patti is the coordinator for the week-long course "Genetics for Genealogists: Beginning DNA" at the Institute of Genealogy and Historical Research (IGHR) and "DNA Fundamentals for Genealogy" at the Texas Institute of Genealogical Research (TIGR). Her article "DNA Identifies a Father for Rachel Lee of Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania" was published in the March 2017 issue of the National Genealogical Society Quarterly, and she is a contributing author of Advanced Genetic Genealogy: Techniques and Case Studies. Patti is also a lifetime member and current president of the Ozarks Genealogical Society. She has been actively involved by serving in the positions of webmaster, treasurer, and Education Committee chair.
