BOOK - Genealogical Standards of Evidence, A Guide for Family Historians
By Brenda Dougall Merriman

Genealogy and family history revolve around issues of identification. Genealogical evidence is the information — analyzed and evaluated — that allows us to identify an individual, and event in his or her life or the relationship between individuals. In describing how we establish or argue points of identification through the use of various sources and information, we often hear or use such words as “evidence” or “proof” or “documentation.”

This book is intended as a supplement to courses, workshops or seminars you have attended; reinforcement for your homework and the research you have started; and an inexpensive reference work when compiling and checking your research notes.

This book will tell you about how the genealogical community developed standards of evidence and documentation, what those standards are and how you can apply them to your own work.

This book will not tell you how to trace your ancestors or how to find the sources you need for your own research. These are provided by genealogical societies and their resources; by local classes, workshops and seminars; by attending conferences; by reading guides and methodology books; by studying scholarly periodicals in the library; or by taking online courses.
