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


12 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 oneís own research. It is highly recommended for a researcherís personal collection. --FGS Forum

The Genealogistís Guide to Researching Tax Records, Carol Cook Darrow, CG and Susan Winchester, Ph.D., CPA


13 The Genealogistís Guide to Researching Tax Records
Carol Cook Darrow, CG and Susan Winchester, Ph.D., CPA

The Genealogist's Guide to Researching Tax Records - Carol Cook Darrow, CG and Susan Winchester, Ph.D., CPA. The census taker came every ten years and often missed people. The tax collector came every year and seldom missed anyone. The Genealogist's Guide to Researching Tax Records will give you the techniques to locate, read, and understand the valuable information in these annual records. Researching tax records, which date from the 1620s to the present day, can help you establish the location, real estate, personal possessions, economic status and perhaps even the occupations and family relationships of your ancestors. Learn how to find tax records, how to read these records and understand the information they provide. Chapters one and two explain techniques that will help you successfully research tax records. Subsequent chapters explain how to apply those techniques in researching head or poll taxes, real estate taxes, personal property taxes, federal taxes, inheritance taxes, and a variety of miscellaneous taxes. Tax records are especially helpful for the period before the first U.S. census in 1790 and for the period between 1880 and 1900. This is the most complete guide to researching tax records in print and includes examples from New England, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Tennessee, Arkansas, Texas, Arizona, and more. Appendices, bibliographies, and a subject index add to the value of this work. 2007, 5Ĺx8Ĺ, paper, index, 182 pp.

Social Media for Family Historians, Carole Riley


14 Social Media for Family Historians
Carole Riley
paperback, 80 pages, 2nd ed., colour photos, glossary, index
The internet allows us to interact in ways we have never had before. We can find friends and relatives; stay in touch with them; share news, family trees, stories, photos, and videos; find useful information for our research; and be an active part of as many communities as we care to join. The websites that enable all of this are called 'social media'.
'Social Media for Family Historians' introduces more than 25 websites that can help family historians to communicate, share and collaborate with other family historians and with their own families. It covers new ways to communicate such as Skype and Second Life; social networking sites such as Facebook,blogs and microblogs such as Twitter; sites for sharing photos and videos such as Flickr and YouTube; and community information sites such as wikis and social bookmarking.

You will learn what social media is; why you would want to use it; what the risks are, and how to avoid them. Easy-to-follow guides on how to get started with Facebook and blogging - two of the most useful forms of social media - can help you take the plunge.

If you are a family historian, or if you have a family, this book is for you!

This excellent research guide provides a very clear discussion of slave genealogy with emphasis on the non-plantation slaves, and vividly demonstrates-with three case studies drawn from the records of Wayne County, Kentucky-the research methods and types of analysis that must be employed, and the importance of researching both owners and slaves. The text is carefully documented. The case studies are supported by various charts and diagrams, and numerous extracts from original sources which clearly illustrate the methodology and major types of records used.
