Evidentia and The Family History Guide--Saturday, May 20, 2017

We have a special treat for you at this Saturday's general meeting.

We will start the meeting with Rondie Yancey presenting a class on Evidentia, a unique program that helps you to analyze your evidence, resolve conflicts, and confidently reach sound conclusions. The software follows the Genealogical Proof Standard (GPS) developed by the Board for Certification of Genealogists (BCG).

Rondie Yancey was born and raised in the Northwest, but settled in Tucson in 1989, and considers Tucson the best place in the world to live. It was shortly after moving to Tucson that she became interested in genealogy, and began research on one family that she thought might take one or two years to complete….(short pause for laughter to subside). After all these years, she still thinks genealogy is the most fascinating of subjects, and likes to create small books about members of her ancestral line for the benefit of family members who don’t have time or inclination to do the research, but who do enjoy reading about their family history.

Following the class, Bob Black  will present a program on The Family History Guide. This free new website represents a best-in-class learning environment for family history. Its scope is broad, but its focus is narrow enough to help you achieve your goals, step by step. The Guide's mission is to "greatly increase the number of people actively involved in family history worldwide, and to make everyone's family history journey easier, more efficient, and more enjoyable."

Bob Black spent 20+ years working in healthcare human resources before retiring. In 2011, he began working at the eastside Tucson Family History Center along with his wife, June. He began serving as Director there in 2014. Bob's passion is helping people at the Center with their family history discovery journey.
