at 4:00 p.m., he will offer “ Anderson
in 1910,” an in-depth demographic analysis of the host city as it was in 1910. Las Vegas 's study can
serve as a model for similar projects in other places. On Saturday, 11 May, at
11:30 a.m., he will speak about how consistent application of “The Elements of
Genealogical Analysis” can make genealogical study more rigorous. Anderson
