MPG chapter 2 Fundamental Concepts homework part 1

I like MGP2 participant Kerry Scott’s comparison of the copyright to be able to answer the questions in this program.  Here is my summary of Chapter 2.

This chapter is about a proving a connection based on a reasonable conclusion based on the factual documents that you have found.  This boils down to the 5 basic questions of who, what, when, where and why. The genealogical proof references four other parts categories, relationships and identity and activity.

Dr. Jones gives an article to review of a family to using timeline of legal documents but it does not contain birth, marriage or death records.  The question is to find out how the said individuals are connected and how did you come to this conclusion.

I’m a bit behind on my homework, so the answers to the questions to follow.
