SL: Proof Arguments discussion at Just Genealogy

DearREADERS,
Join us Tuesday, December 18, 2012 at 6pm Second Life time (same as Pacific US) for a discussion of Proof Arguments at the Just Genealogy Fire Pit in Second Life (SL). There IS prep-work for the session. Why not print out the articles and read them at your leisure (??) if you have any of that this time of year!


Study materials include:
  • Laura A. DeGrazia, "Proof Arguments," OnBoard 15 (January 2009): 1-3.
  • Barbara Vines Little, "It's Not That Hard to Write Proof Arguments," OnBoard 15 (September 2009): 20-23.
"Just as mathematicians construct proofs to convince others of the truth of mathematical statements, genealogists assemble proof arguments to convince others of their genealogical conclusions. A proof argument is a detailed, written explanation of the evidence and reasoning used to reach a genealogical conclusion." Laura A. DeGrazia.
