Genealogy in the Sunshine: Monday

The day got underway with a panel on the genealogical proof standard. Else Churchill started the discussion with a presentation and mentioned the additions to the original GPS adopted by the Society of Genealogists to reflect Britain's situation.
In the afternoon Donald Davis from BC spoke about a unique collection of 500 householder schedules from the 1841 census of Shropshire and comparison to enumerator's schedule.

John Hanson mentioned Archer software's listing of IGI batch numbers which replaces Hugh Wallis facility but without dated links to FamilySearch.

Chris Paton gave one of his usual entertaining and information packed presentations, this one on Scottish marriages.
