Genealogical Standards of Evidence: A Guide for Family Historians, Brenda Dougall Merriman


2 Genealogical Standards of Evidence: A Guide for Family Historians
Brenda Dougall Merriman
2010, 120pp, Paperback
Genealogical evidence is the information that allows us to identify an individual, an event in his or her life, or the relationship between individuals. In such a process, we often hear or use words such as evidence, proof, or documentation. Brenda Dougall Merriman takes readers through the genealogical process of research and identification, along the way examining how the genealogical community has developed standards of evidence and documentation, what those standards are, and how they can be applied. As a supplement to courses, workshops, and seminars, this book provides both an in-depth and inexpensive reference, perfect for compiling and checking research notes.

This book is an excellent practical reference guide to current genealogical standards and how to apply them to one’s own research. It is highly recommended for a researcher’s personal collection. --FGS Forum

Evidence Explained: Citing History Sources from Artifacts to Cyberspace, 3rd edition, Elizabeth Shown Mills


5 Evidence Explained: Citing History Sources from Artifacts to Cyberspace, 3rd edition
Elizabeth Shown Mills
Hardcover, 885 pages, 2015, reprinted 2008, hardback, Genealogical Publishing Company
NEW 3rd EDITION!!!
According to the author, there are no historical resources we can trust at face value. Records simply offer evidence, and their assertions may or may not be true. To decide what actually happened, we must understand those records. To analyze that evidence and judge what to believe, we also need particular facts about those records.

Thus, Evidence Explained has two principal uses: it provides citation models for most historical sources—especially original materials not covered by classic citation guides such as The Chicago Manual of Style. Beyond that it can help us understand each type of record and identify each in such detail that we and our readers will know not only where to go to find our source, but, equally important, the nature of that source so that the evidence can be better interpreted and the accuracy of our conclusions properly appraised.

Highlights

Covers all contemporary and electronic sources not discussed in traditional style manuals, including digital, audio, and video sources
Explains citation principals and includes more than 1,000 citation models for virtually every source type
Shows readers where to go to find their sources and how to describe them and evaluate them
Teaches readers to separate facts from assertions and theory from proof in the evaluation of evidence


Most Importantly Evidence Explained discusses source citations for every known class of records, including microfilm and microfiche, and records created by the new digital media:
Websites
Digital books and journals
DVDs
CDs
Audio files
Podcasts
E-zines

Reviews
"This is an essential resource for family historians; highly recommended for all libraries."--LIBRARY JOURNAL (November 2007).

"...A key resource guide for scholars and serious researchers who must rely upon and understand historical evidence....Highly recommended. Upper-level undergraduates and above"--CHOICE (March 2008).

"If researchers purchase one book this year, it should be Evidence Explained....This 885-page work expands and updates Evidence!, published in 1997, creating the first comprehensive style manual for genealogical writing and publishing....Despite the book's heft, serious researchers will heartily welcome this comprehensive work. In standardizing a family history style, Mills has advanced the discipline. She has given genealogical researchers, writers, editors, and publishers invaluable new tools to bring quality and consistency to their work and distinction to the field."--NATIONAL GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY QUARTERLY (September 2007), p. 233.

"...more than 1,000 citation models covering print, microfilm, microfiche, Web sites, digital books and journals, DVDs, CDs, audio files, podcasts, and e-zines...an excellent purchase for academic and larger public libraries."--BOOKLIST.

This remarkably useful book is the definitive guide for how to cite every conceivable kind of source that a historian might use, from traditional archival materials to digital media to the most arcane sources imaginable. This volume will be indispensable to every serious scholar, writer, and editor."--JOHN B. BOLES, Editor, THE JOURNAL OF SOUTHERN HISTORY (August 2007).

"Twenty-first century technology confronts historians, genealogists, and students with a bewildering proliferation of information--some of it accurate and too much of it dubious. In Evidence Explained: Citing History Sources from Artifacts to Cyberspace Elizabeth Shown Mills demonstrates how to separate the wheat from the chaff--and how to report one's sources and achievements. This encyclopedic guidebook is an invaluable resource for genealogists and historians, students and editors alike."--JON KUKLA, author of Mr. Jefferson's Women and A Wilderness So Immense: The Louisiana Purchase and the Destiny of America.

"Carry it around and look up the correct citation of any source you come across. Keep it at your side to help you identify sources and use it to evaluate digital and internet sources. This is the very latest source you will have to guide you in the modern age"--BLUEGRASS ROOTS (Fall 2007).

"Evidence Explained...is more than a mere expansion of Evidence! Citations and Analysis for the Family Historian. As a transition, it is the next generation of genealogical and historical documentation style guide and will likely remain so for years to come. It should be on every genealogist's shelf to be consulted often"--NEW MEXICO GENEALOGIST (March 2008).

QuickSheet: Citing Ancestry.com Databases & Images,first revised edition, Elizabeth Shown Mills


6 QuickSheet: Citing Ancestry.com Databases & Images,first revised edition
Elizabeth Shown Mills

Ancestry.com is the largest and most widely used genealogy site on the Internet. As an Ancestry.com user yourself, you’ve looked at databases with billions of names, so now you want to be sure you can get back to a specific record or lead others to the same record; and you need to identify your sources, to verify and cross-check them for accuracy, using the correct citations to Ancestry’s online databases and images.

Help is at hand with Elizabeth Mills’s fabulous new QuickSheet, which provides rules and models for citing the myriad databases and images you use on Ancestry.com. With this new QuickSheet, you’ll know instantly how to cite databases that include census records, vital records, passenger lists, city directories, and family trees; and how to cite images that include manuscripts, maps, newspapers, and online books and articles. In QuickSheet: Citing Ancestry.com Databases & Images you’ll find the standards you need for the correct citation of Ancestry sources, as well as help in judging the reliability of those sources.

For most Ancestry.com sources, sample citations are shown here in three styles: Source List Entry, Full Reference Note, and Short Reference Note, each showing you how to deal with author/creator, title, website, URL, date accessed, item type, source of sources, and so forth. Arranged in tabular format under each of these headings, the sample citations are easy to follow and can be applied to your specific needs in citing your sources.

Convenient for desktop use at home or in the library, the new QuickSheet, like its companion, QuickSheet: Citing Online Historical Resources Evidence! Style, is a heavily laminated sheet, folded to form a standard 8½” x 11” folder, and is designed for constant use.

QuickSheet: Citing Online African-American Historical Resources Evidence! Style, Elizabeth Shown Mills


7 QuickSheet: Citing Online African-American Historical Resources Evidence! Style
Elizabeth Shown Mills

Basic citation models given here help researchers evaluate the reliability of online historical sources by recording all relevant information about both the historical material itself and the website that provides the material.

In citing online historical sources Mrs. Mills offers two basic style formats:

**Source-list style, used in bibliographies, gives a short and general identification of a source.
**Reference-note style, used for footnotes and endnotes, adds specific details about particular information within the source.

With this basic template, the African-American QuickSheet provides models for citing common resources such as databases, image copies, transcripts, blogs, books, and articles, using the widely accepted citation principles established in the QuickSheet series. Arranged in tabular format, the sample citations are easy to follow and can be applied to your specific needs in citing your sources.

While it provides standards for citing online sources, this QuickSheet is, of course, tailored to the African-American experience, so source citation models bear on subjects such as slave manifests, slave narratives, Freedmen’s Bureau records, and slave census schedules. This QuickSheet is a laminated four-sided sheet designed for heavy use.

QuickSheet: Citing Online Historical Resources Evidence! Style. First Revised Edition, Elizabeth Shown Mills


8 QuickSheet: Citing Online Historical Resources Evidence! Style. First Revised Edition
Elizabeth Shown Mills

Provides a template for citing historical sources on the Internet. It also lays down rules to help you judge the reliability of these sources.

Published in the form of a laminated folder, the QuickSheet contains a series of sample citations showing the correct way to identify online sources such as databases, census images, and digital books and articles.

Based on the premise that online sources are publications that have the same characteristics as printed publications, it provides rules and models for common record types such as passenger lists, vital records, and newspapers. Since a website is the online equivalent of a book, the QuickSheet shows you how to cite author/creator/owner of a website, title of the website, place (URL), date posted, and so forth.

Convenient for desktop use at home or in the library, the QuickSheet answers all those niggling questions left unanswered by the standard citation guides; it is also a perfect companion to the classic citation manual Evidence! Citation & Analysis for the Family Historian and Mills' 885-page definitive guide to the citation and analysis of historical sources, Evidence Explained: Citing History Sources from Artifacts to Cyberspace.

QuickSheet: The Historical Biographer's Guide to the Research Process, Elizabeth Shown Mills


9 QuickSheet: The Historical Biographer's Guide to the Research Process
Elizabeth Shown Mills

Building on a lifetime of experience, Elizabeth Mills argues that successful research can be achieved by following four specific models:

**The Research Process Model **The Research Analysis Model **The Identity Triangulation Model **The Reliability Model

The first of these, the research process model, involves several indispensable steps: analyze the problem, place it in legal and social context, identify related and associated individuals, identify relevant resources, identify pros and cons in their use, and, finally, develop a research plan. The second model--the research analysis model--contains this simple bedrock principle: Sources provide information from which we select evidence for analysis. A sound conclusion may then be treated as “proof” until and unless new evidence emerges to the contrary.

The third item in the research process is the triangulation model, which states: Identity is more than a name. It is every known detail of a human life. Identity is determined by triangulating three things: persona, relationships, and origin. Finally, the capstone in the research process, the reliability model, offers this principle relating to proof: Proof is not a source or a citation. It is a body of evidence accumulated in the process of research and analysis, and is arrived at by problem analysis, research, documentation, record analysis, correlation, conflict resolution, and explanation of evidence and conclusions.

If the objective of research is to reach conclusions and establish proof, this QuickSheet will get you to your goal with absolute confidence.

QuickSheet: The Historical Biographer’s Guide to Cluster Research (the FAN Principle), Elizabeth Shown Mills


10 QuickSheet: The Historical Biographer’s Guide to Cluster Research (the FAN Principle)
Elizabeth Shown Mills

Introduces the concept of “Cluster Research” based on the FAN principle, the idea being that to prove identity, origin, and parentage individuals must be studied in the context of their FAN club--family, associates, and neighbors. Historical information, she says, is like real estate: the true value of any piece of information is unknown until it is put into community context.

To apply the FAN principle in order to establish a set of facts concerning identity, parentage, and origin, several questions must be asked: Who are the known members of the FAN club? What did they do together? When did they have this association? Where did this association occur? And why did these people interact? Since most individuals left comparatively few records, the answers we seek to specific research questions may not appear in any surviving record, but by expanding our research to include family, friends, neighbors, and associates we increase the number of resources available to assemble a historical biography.

Illustrated by a bull’s eye, targeted research using the FAN principle starts with the targeted person, then works outward to known relatives and in-laws, to others of the same surname, to associates and neighbors, and ultimately to associates of those associates, piling up details in ever-widening rings to cover all members of the target’s circle of acquaintances. As the bull’s eye illustrates, the core target is relatively small, but as we move outward, the target enlarges, the range of possible discoveries greatly expands, and the amount of time needed to cover all possibilities also increases.

In the end, where direct evidence is usually lacking, we fall back on family, associates, and neighbors to reconstruct a life and create a historical biography. With the rules laid down in this QuickSheet we have the tools to test prior assumptions, analyze new findings, and ultimately prove identity, origin, and parentage.

11 QuickSheet: The Historical Biographer’s Guide to Finding People in Databases & Indexes
Elizabeth Shown Mills

The premise of this QuickSheet is that while databases and indexes are valuable tools for research, they can actually impede the research process. We all know that databases and indexes can shortcut the process of discovery, and many search engines offer wildcard and Boolean options, as well as phonetic indexing systems to help researchers contend with clerical carelessness and data-entry errors. But historical records involve vagaries that defy technical formulas. Databases and indexes then become obstacles that actually block discoveries. Enter Elizabeth Mills, who in this QuickSheet shows how to adopt pro-active strategies to overcome this problem and thus get the full benefit of databases and indexes.

Confronting the problem head-on she first identifies a number of typical weaknesses--erratic spelling, family names as surnames, female name usage, penmanship, regional dialects, transcription and translation, and arbitrary selection criteria. Along with these considerations she spells out a number of specific strategies ranging from searching for given names among clusters of associates to substituting adjacent letters and numbers on a typewriter keyboard.

Three of the four laminated pages of this QuickSheet are then given over to a table of common anomalies and errors, with columnar listings of anomaly types, typical problems, and examples. Anomaly types, covering almost every erratic feature, include abbreviations, spelling issues, prefixes, handwriting, language, dialects, sorting errors, typing errors, and translated names. Corresponding columns then provide listings of typical problems, and, most helpfully, extensive examples of common problems and their likely solutions. This is a very handy feature when you hit a roadblock in your research.

Professional Genealogy: A Manual for Researchers, Writers, Editors, Lecturers, and Librarians, Elizabeth Shown Mills, editor


13 Professional Genealogy: A Manual for Researchers, Writers, Editors, Lecturers, and Librarians
Elizabeth Shown Mills, editor
8.5x11",654 pages
Professional Genealogy is a manual by professionals for everyone serious about genealogy. For family historians who want to do their own study, reliably, it describes the standards. For hobbyists, attorneys, and medical scientists who seek professional researchers, it's a consumer guide that defines quality and facilitates choices. For librarians who struggle to help a whole new class of patrons, it provides a bridge to the methods, sources, and minutiae of "history, up-close and personal." For established genealogical professionals, it offers benchmarks by which they can advance their skills and places their businesses on sounder footing. And for all those who dream of turning a fascinating hobby into a successful career, Professional Genealogy details the preparation and the processes.

Its twenty-nine chapters, written by two dozen scholars, cover the following topic areas: research skills and the analysis of evidence, writing and compiling genealogical research, the core genealogy library collection, genealogical ethics and standards, editing and publishing, and topics relating to the profession of genealogist.

"Professional Genealogy is a landmark--the field's most significant publication since 1960, when the American Society of Genealogists introduced Genealogical Research: Methods and Sources. In a sense, though, its title belies its greatest value: it offers priceless guidance to the many amateur family historians who want to ensure that their work is of high quality and enduring value."--Thomas W. Jones, Ph.D., CG, CGL, President, Board for Certification of Genealogists

The Researcher's Guide to American Genealogy, Third Edition, Val D. Greenwood


15 The Researcher's Guide to American Genealogy, Third Edition
Val D. Greenwood
676 pages, 6 x 9, paper, 6 x 9, 676 pages, 2000, 2005, hardback, Genealogical Publishing Company
"Recommended as the most comprehensive how-to book on American genealogical and local history research."--Library Journal

In every field of study there is one book that rises above the rest in stature and authority and becomes the standard work in the field. In genealogy that book is Val Greenwood's Researcher's Guide to American Genealogy.

Arguably the best book ever written on American genealogy, it is the text of choice in colleges and universities or wherever courses in American genealogy are taught. Of the dozens of textbooks, manuals, and how-to books that have appeared over the past twenty-five years, it is the one book that is consistently praised for setting a standard of excellence.

In a word, The Researcher's Guide has become a classic. While it instructs the researcher in the timeless principles of genealogical research, it also identifies the various classes of records employed in that research, groups them in convenient tables and charts, gives their location, explains their uses, and evaluates each of them in the context of the research process. Designed to answer practically all the researcher's needs, it is both a textbook and an all-purpose reference book. And it is this singular combination that makes The Researcher's Guide the book of choice in any genealogical investigation. It is also the reason why if you can afford to buy only one book on American genealogy in a lifetime, this has to be it.

This new 3rd edition incorporates the latest thinking on genealogy and computers, specifically the relationship between computer technology (the Internet and CD-ROM) and the timeless principles of good genealogical research. It also includes a new chapter on the property rights of women, a revised chapter on the evaluation of genealogical evidence, and updated information on the 1920 census. Little else has changed, or needs to be changed, because the basics of genealogy remain timeless and immutable. This 3rd edition of The Researcher's Guide, then, is a clear, comprehensive, and up-to-date account of the methods and aims of American genealogy--an essential text for the present generation of researchers--and no sound genealogical project is complete without it.

Reviews
"Greenwood's guide has long been regarded as the best of its kind, a text and reference work for anyone who is doing American genealogical research beyond the beginner's level...Purchase of Greenwood's guide is recommended to any serious genealogist, and every genealogical library should have this latest edition on its shelves."--THE NEW YORK GENEALOGICAL AND BIOGRAPHICAL RECORD (July 2000), p. 229.

"...this work is still the single best reference and text for the serious beginning genealogist."--AMERICAN REFERENCE BOOKS ANNUAL (1991).

"Greenwood's book is easy to read and covers a broad enough spectrum of resources that readers are equipped to get started with a minimum investment of study time. For those who want to learn how to build pedigrees and reconstruct family groups, tying them from one generation to the next, this book is an excellent guide...This book also has value to other researchers. Historians, demographers, and sociologists studying people in the past will find that this book will provide important guidance in assessing which records will provide the facts needed. Government document librarians will appreciate having this book to refer to in answering questions about censuses and other sources created by national and state government. It is still one of the best guidebooks on genealogical research available. It is an important title to include in collections of libraries with patrons interested in genealogical research."--GOVERNMENT PUBLICATIONS REVIEW, Vol. 18 (1991).

"Seventeen years ago this Reviewer wrote: 'It is impossible to recommend this book too highly. It is indispensable for anyone interested in genealogical research.' The verdict stands."--THE VIRGINIA GENEALOGIST, Vol. 34, No. 3 (July-September 1990).

"...this modestly priced classic remains the outstanding text on American genealogy. It belongs in every library whose patrons explore genealogy."--LIBRARY JOURNAL (April 1, 1990).
