Citation and Analysis for the Family Historian
by Elizabeth Shown Mills
Evidence! provides the researcher with a reliable standard for both the correct form of source citation and the sound analysis of evidence. In successful genealogical research, these two practices are inseparable, and the author's treatment of this little-understood concept is nothing short of brilliant.
Mills explains: "Research, evidence, citation, and analysis are inseparable. Evidence is the vehicle that moves our research from curiosity to reality. Citation and analysis are the twin highways that get us there, smoothly and safely. Evidence! … offers a road map for beginners, who hope to avoid mistakes, and guideposts for the advanced, who already appreciate the need to map their won course precisely."
