No Vitals? No Problem! - Building a Family through Circumstantial Evidence - When there's no birth, marriage or death record, what's a genealogist to do? Learn how to use circumstantial evidence to build a family.
No, no, Nanette! What negative evidence is ... and isn't - Negative evidence is the hardest type of evidence to understand or use in genealogical research. By definition, a "type of evidence arising from an absence of a situation or information in extant records where that information might be expected," it is, as the fictional detective Sherlock Holmes told us in the short story "Silver Blaze," the "curious incident ... in the night-time" - the thing we would expect to see or hear but that just isn't there. Learn more about what negative evidence is - and what it isn't - and how to use it.
