DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE What to Do with Conflicting, Indirect, or Negative Evidence  
In genealogical research, one often finds themselves following a "rabbit trail" - a family story or thread that leads nowhere.  Or does it?  Lewis Carroll's Alice (ofAlice's Adventures in Wonderland) falls a long way down a rabbit hole while following a rabbit trail.  There, she finds herself in a hall with many locked doors of different sizes.  When the genealogist falls down the rabbit hole, he/she, like Alice, will find many locked doors.  Sometimes, conflicting and negative evidence will illuminate or challenge other findings, and more importantly, open locked doors.  Join Tara Kenyon at the March 7, 2019 GPGSTX meeting to acquire skills to glean important information found down the rabbit hole.
