This lecture, presented by professional genealogist Michael Brophy, explains and debunks some of the popular fiction about genealogy and family history.

Topics include:

'You can do your whole family history on the Internet'; 'The courthouse burned down and destroyed all the records'; 'I am descended from an Indian'; 'Our name was changed at Ellis Island'; "Plymouth Plantation: myth and reality'; 'All records you find are accurate and reliable'; 'If my grammie said it was true, it must be true!'; 'You can do your whole family history by using the records of the LDS Church'.

Well-researched proof will be presented to explain these myths. Watch the QATV interview: https://youtu.be/fehK6cpsNSU.
