The Written Conclusion Study Group - Intro and Call for Proof Statements

DearREADERS,
We need your HELP with this specific study group session on "PROOF STATEMENTS." Please submit the link to your blog or Google doc that is an example of what author Thomas W. Jones calls "a data item or sentence in the boarder context."  So, Ol' Myrt here imagines this would include a document, where you disucss a specific information item with a sentence describing the event in the ancestor's life.

Here's a little intro video, to orient you to this study group series. We are reading and doing homework before coming to each study group session. This Friday it's proof statements.
