The Genealogy Research Map (downloadable PDF – 11.4 MB) combines the concepts found in The Genealogical Proof Standard (GPS) from the Board for Certification of Genealogists and the many works of Elizabeth Shown Mills into a single visualization. It is my hope that others will find this map useful as a learning tool or reference.

A few weeks ago I met with members of the Legacy Family Tree team and saw a preview of Legacy 7. I am very impressed. They have really taken source citation seriously and have done a remarkable job digesting the citation models in Elizabeth Shown Mill’s “Evidence Explained.” With the amount of time and effort that Geoff has spent understanding that hefty volume, he is probably one of only a few experts on it.
I am excited for the chance to take if for a spin myself and see how it does for day to day use.
Last week I posted the first and what will probably be the last Fast Fill. The idea was to fill in the blanks of a genealogy-related phrase in a serious or silly way. Kind of like the old Mad-Libs. After a week there have been no responses (other than mine). Maybe this is the wrong place for Fast Fills and a better place would be Chris Dunham’s Genealogue. So Chris, if you like the idea then go ahead and use it.
Fill in the blanks:
At times genealogy/family history can be so ______________________ that it makes me want to ________________ and so I ______________.
Post your serious or silly responses.
