BEWARE! The Enchanted Forest: Perils & Pitfalls of Online Trees

Starts at 2:30 PM Presented by Jean Wilcox Hibben; PhD, MA

When is it safe to get information from an online tree? Here we will discuss where these trees can be found, how to assess them for reliability, how to cite them, how to use them for clues to further your research, and more. Not all online trees are created equal, but most can be evaluated with a few simple steps: don’t become victim to the enchantment of an apparent pot of gold. Good for beginner to intermediate researchers.
