Evidence! Citation & Analysis for the Family Historian
Learn how to document your family tree in such a fashion that even the most accomplished scientist or historian would be unable to refute your work!
Evidence! Citation & Analysis for the Family Historian by Elizabeth Shown Mills is the ultimate source book for genealogical standards of citation and analysis!
Genealogy attracts a rather eclectic mix of people! There are hobbyists curious about their ancestry, geneticists in search of medical breakthroughs, legal researchers, anthropologists, archaeologists, demographers, geographers, historians, and even sociologists. All these people share one thing in common - they are probing the past to better understand the present.
Evidence! provides the structure for a common ground where all can meet, speak the same language and reliably share results.
Our ancestors lived by the maxim, "when you drink from the water, remember the source." Following that principle, Evidence! reminds us that if we do not understand its origins, the information our forebears left can confuse or deceive us, rather than help us. Evidence! clearly and simply explains genealogical standards for citation and analysis.
Additionally, over 300 models for citing conventional and online materials common to family history will help you in your search for your ancestors!
"Not just every genealogist, but every historian as well, should own a copy. Evidence! is filled with useful information that is difficult to find elsewhere."--Grady McWhiney, Ph.D. Lyndon Baines Johnson Professor Emeritus, Texas Christian University.
