Thank you for this very detailed map of the Research Process – I think everyone should be of the research process and apply it in their research.
A couple of questions:
1. You have direct, indirect, and negative listed as different types of evidence – why was circumstantial left off?
2. The proof argument is good, but I wonder if more detail on establishing proof via Evidence Correlation would make it stronger?
Hopefully my questions are viewed as feedback and not criticism – I really appreciate your efforts!
An article that I’ve really enjoyed, and has been helpful in understanding the research process and the conceptual model of genealogical evidence has been:
