Same Name, Must Be the Same Person - Christine Crawford-Oppenheimer

An unprepared family historian can waste valuable research time tracking a supposed ancestor who isn’t actually in the person’s family; on the other hand, the family historian might not realize that an ancestor used more than one name. This talk discusses points related to personal identity to keep in mind when researching. Learn the kinds of unique identifiers that you can use to recognize ancestors, no matter what name they used, and differentiate them from other same-named people, so you will research your own ancestors, and not someone else’s.
