You cannot recognize Allan without associating him with his wife Joy and their business, Joy Murrin Family History Services. Their virtual presentation at RootsTech 2021 was a new endeavour from in-person presentations.

For more than 40 years Allan and Joy have been researching their family history. In 1995 Joy was appointed as an Accredited Transcription Agent by the NSW Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages. The family business has grown from the NSW Transcription Service to include Registrations and Certificates for England/Wales, Scotland, Victoria and New Zealand.
Since 1989 they have been volunteerconsultants at the Mortdale Family History Centre giving them practical experience in FamilySearch.
Joy and Allan have a further skill in recording Oral Histories.
Their vast involvement equips them to speak on a wide range oftopics. They have also written a number of books. Allan recently completed studies which led to his graduation from the University ofTasmania.
Allan & Joy continue to find joy in their own family, and in assistingothers find joy in family history.
Taking the wrong research path or running into brick walls sometimes results from not using enough evidence or sidestepping research with shortcuts. Allan will demonstrate some pitfalls when only relying on one document. He will illustrate the differences in document details and offer solutions to provide evidence with more than one source.
