BOOK - Referencing for Genealogists: Sources and Citation
By Ian G. Macdonald
Published by The History Press, Stroud (England), 2018

Softcover...SOLD OUT (C$)

Reliable genealogical conclusions depend on reliable data. Central to any good investigation is an appreciation of where the data came from so that other investigator can re-examine it and re-establish the conclusions reached.

Genealogy is little more than anecdote when the sources for facts are not cited and where clear references to sources are not given. This book will enable others to follow in your footsteps because it gives you the means to write clear, unambiguous references that provide solid support to the evidence you offer towards your conclusions. It is packed with examples that the reader can learn from and which also provide a treasure trove of sources invaluable to any genealogist.
