    Dave has worked for the National Archives at the Family Records Centre for many years and became Principal Family History Specialist after the move to Kew. He has written several family history books and is also a contributor to Family Tree Magazine. 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. Of course, sometimes our ancestors simply didn’t know the answer to the 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. ***** This event is for members only and registration opens on 1st June and closes 13th June on XXXX REBEMBER you need to be logged into the website using your user name and password to register, then please click on the title of this Seminar, then click ‘Join’, followed by ‘Save’ – You will receive an email confirmation of your request to attend the talk and the zoom links/meeting protocol will be forwarded 2 days prior to the talk.
