I just received my copy of Evidence Explained: Citing History Sources from Artifacts to Cyberspace by Elizabeth Shown Mills and I am so excited! I look forward to studying it in detail. I am very interested in how its contents can be applied to genealogy software. What if this book were used as a requirements document for software? If the knowledge and best practices from this book were coded into a genealogy application, then genealogists and family historians from beginners to professionals would speak the same language. What if all genealogy software encoded these same best practices and they became a standard feature just like the pedigree chart? That would be some real innovation.
The book can be purchased from Genealogical Publishing Company.
