Telling Good Evidence From Bad

 Presented by Judy G. Russell, JD

 

The “best evidence” rule in law prefers that documents presented to a court be the original rather than a copy. A copy won’t even be admitted if the original is available. In genealogy, our rules require us to do the same: to discriminate, to choose the preferred proof, and to favor certain types of evidence and sources of information to others. What is considered “good” and “bad” evidence? wards owing to their racial or religious backgrounds.
