Have you a copy of the book, Evidence Explained?

I recommend that every genealogist, whether professional or not, have a copy of this book on their bookshelf, desk, or other easily accessible place. Not a day goes by that I do not access the book.

From the title page of the book, “Citing History Sources from Artifacts to Cyberspace”, this book is a book of citations, but also much more.

Below is a scan of the inside-front-cover of the book. This simple chart reminds every one of the research process that is necessary when researching a family. There are sources, information, and evidence, which together aid in the analysis of the information. And thus, provide the proof of the information.

Also available are “Quicksheets” – laminated folders that have specific information – easier to carry with you then the book!

I am not getting any commission from these items.
