202012mar1:00 pm3:00 pmBuilding a Genealogical Proof Argument by Sydney Cruice Dixon


Event Details

How do you provide genealogical proof when no singular document contains the evidence? Using a case study, Sydney will show how it is necessary to break down an historical event into the who, the when, and the where. Therefore the result is building a three-proof argument.

Sydney F. Cruice Dixon is a professional genealogist, writer and lecturer practicing in the Mid-Atlantic Region. She holds an MBA from Drexel University and a BA from Penn State University. She is the current resident of the Association of Professional Genealogists for the Greater Philadelphia Area Chapter, and she serves on the Genealogy Advisory Committee for the Historical Society of Pennsylvania. Also, at the Historical Society, she developed the curriculum and teaches the Foundations of Genealogy courses and she is a member of their faculty for the Researching Family in Pennsylvania Institute. In the spring of 2017 she cofounded the Greater Philadelphia Genealogy Consortium – an organization that encourages the growth and cooperation between genealogy and historical organizations in the greater Philadelphia area (currently 33 member organizations). Just this October, the National Genealogical Society featured Sydney’s article, A Family Secret: Desertion, Scurvy, and President Lincoln as the cover story for NGS Magazine. Also, she has
appeared on our local NBC-10 news television station with Randy Gyllenhaal discussing at home DNA testing kits.
