Family Research 100: Validating the Research Trail In Family Research
Research Lab Objective
The primary objective of this research lab, combining historiography and genealogy, is to expose the aspiring research-scholar to the elementary cautions and some fast-track procedures useful to an investigator determining fact from rumor and/or fiction. More specifically, the research lab will introduce students to research methodology and afford them an opportunity to work with primary documents and other sources, and to develop a strategy for ascertaining the validity of their research. This is a co-curricular certificate course.
