In the last two and a half months alone, the original Genealogy Research Process Map post received 500 pageviews. Version 2 of the map has only a few changes. Besides fixing two typos, the arrows separating the 6 process steps where moved up next to the step headers. I did this to help it look more like a timeline. Looking at the map, there are three main “rows”: the circle diagram, the process timeline, and the process details. The idea is to start in the middle of the diagram to understand the steps in the process: Define, Search, Cite, Analyze, Resolve, and Conclude.
Then you can read the step details below or see the concepts and artifacts above with color coding to relate them to the steps.
