MGP2 - Still on Chapter 5, but working on correlation

DearREADERS,
Last week our MGP2 (Mastering Genealogical Proof) study group tackled Chapter 5, and we gained a good understanding of the analysis section, specifically "What does the information item state or imply?" This week we're tackling the second portion of the chapter to understand how to correlate these findings with information items found in all sources to determine an fairly reliable answer to our research question.




HERE'S HOW TO PARTICIPATE

1. REVIEW MGP1 - Chapter 5 GPS Element 3: Analysis and Correlation

2. GO TO THE THE VIEWING and COMMENTing page:

10am Eastern (New York)
9am Central (Chicago)
8am Mountain (Salt Lake City, Denver)
7am Pacific (Los Angeles)

HOMEWORK
Read each chapter in advance of the study group session, but don't attempt to do your written homework until the panel has discussed the chapter. We are on the honor system here. No need to check in with Ol' Myrt. In fact, Dr. Jones has provided answers at the end of the book.

The MGP Study Group 2 will have one advantage:  We can view the MGP1 (Mastering Genealogical Proof Study Group One) archived sessions in addition to attending our own sessions. Those archived versions appear on DearMYRTLE's YouTube Channel located here: http://www.youtube.com/user/DearMYRTLE/videos
