My Ancestor was a Liar

Dave Annal returns to our centre with a talk which explores the untruths which hamper our research.

Sifting through the evidence to find the truth (or what passes for the truth in the world of genealogy) is a skill which all serious family historians need to develop.   The information left by our ancestors is all too frequently misleading, inaccurate or just plain wrong!  As we become more experienced we find that they had any number of reasons to be economical with the truth. Sometimes our ancestors simply did not know the answer to questions thrown at them by the Clerks. Registrars and enumerators.   Using real examples, this talk will look at some of the reasons why our ancestors might have lied and offer suggestions on how to recognise their varying degrees of ignorance, half-truths and wilful deception.
