Connecting Up Doctrine

From lawbrain.com

A term relating to the admissibility of evidence which means that a fact may be admitted into evidence provided that its relevance will subsequently become apparent when it is linked to other facts presented later.

Proof that a witness was present at a certain time and place may be connected up with later evidence to show its significance to the case at bar.
