*Right, Wrong or It Depends: Ethics for the Professional Genealogist*
Thursday, 10 December 2015, 9:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time

The ethical challenges of professional genealogy in the 21st century can be daunting: just where does the line get drawn between what's right and what's wrong? And when so much ends up in the “it depends” category, where does a professional turn for guidance in figuring out what the decision
depends on? This webinar will explore what's white, what's black and where to turn when the decision is all grey in ethical considerations for professional genealogists.
