Help with Proof Summaries?

Talk about peer review! We're tackling the second type of WRITTEN CONCLUSION during Friday's Hangout on Air, as we review Chapter 7 of  Thomas W. Jones' Mastering Genealogical Proof. We do need your homework submitted in advance, so we can work through them during this live hangout.
