Storbeck's

Book Description Genealogical Publishing Co, Baltimore, 1997. Hardcover. Condition: New. Index. . 124 pages. Our ancestors lived by the maxim when you drink from the water, remember the source. Following that principle, Evidence! Reminds us that the information our forebears left can confuse or deceive us, rather than help us, if we do not know and understand its origins. Clearly and simply, Evidence! Explains genealogical standards for citation and analysis -- then provides over 300 models for citing conventional and online materials common to family history. Elizabeth Shown Mills' stunning book, Evidence! , provides the family history 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. This dual-track theme is introduced early on, and is best summed up in a few choice paragraphs from the introduction: "Successful research--research that yields correct information with a minimum of wasted time and funds--depends upon a sound analysis of evidence. Source citation is fundamental, but it is not enough. The validity of any piece of evidence cannot be analyzed if its source is unknown. Citing a worthless source is an effort that produces worthless results. "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! Tries to strip away much of the confusion that researchers experience in this adventure. It offers a road map for beginners, who hope to avoid mistakes, and guideposts for the advanced, who already appreciate the need to map their own course precisely. . . . "Evidence! Stems from the belief that most researchers want to do good work. We simply need guidelines and explicit models--ones tailored to genealogy and to the original sources we commonly use but cannot find discussed in The Chicago Manual of Style, the MLA Handbook, or similar manuals aimed at a broader market.
