Product description

Review

...should be considered a must-read by anyone doing family history research in Canada. This easy-to-read book makes it simple to understand the different record sources, and the limitations and possibilities of each one. Merriman's book makes it clear that it does not have to be difficult to get your facts right.

(Times-Colonist, The)

This work is essential in the Internet age.

(Ottawa Citizen, The)

How often do genealogists encounter a methodology book they can't put down? Merriman's is such a book." "Merriman's delightful book explains and illustrates standards and evidential concepts and acts like a pocket-sized reference source for further study.

(Elissa Scalise Powell National Genealogical Society Quarterly 2010-09-01)

This slim book tackles a bold and worthy goal.

(Jay Fonkert International Society of Family History Writers and Editors 2010-06-01)

Genealogical Standards of Evidence: A Guide for Family Historians by Brenda Dougall Merriman is a must for the serious genealogist.

(Linda Kent The Lindsay Post 2010-01-01)

This book is an excellent practical reference guide to current genealogical standards and how to apply them to ones own research. It is highly recommended for a researchers personal collection.

(FGS Forum)

The author’s grasp of genealogical research principles and extensive experience with Canadians records are evident throughout. (International Society of Family History Writers and Editors)

Merriman’s delightful book explains and illustrates standards and evidential concepts and acts like a pocket-sized reference source for further study. (National Genealogical Society Quarterly)

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.
