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