Description

Forensic Genealogy means four different things: 1. how genealogists interact with lawyers and the law in different countries - heir-hunting, copyright, privacy, freedom of information, property law etc. 2. standards of proof - what is acceptable as evidence, especially when working for lawyers or appearing in court. 3. science as applied to genealogy - DNA, paternity etc. 4. dating documents, pictures, artefacts etc. Increasingly, genealogists work with and alongside lawyers to find heirs and missing relatives, determine routes of inheritance and claims to titles. The working genealogist needs an understanding of the law and the science in these areas. This is the ideal book for professional genealogists looking to work in this area, and for local and family historians who have gone beyond the initial stages in their ancestral journeys.show more
