Navigating Research with the GPS – Syllabus

Wednesday, 10 Jun 2009 | by Mark Tucker

The 2009 BYU Conference on Family History and Genealogy will be held July 28-31 in Provo, Utah. The deadline for syllabus material is June 22.

My presentation is one I have done before: “Navigating Research with the Genealogical Proof Standard.” We are allotted 4 pages for the syllabus material and so far I have used 3. Here is a preview of the syllabus material. Please provide constructive feedback.

P.S.  I will be presenting on Friday, July 31 from 1:30-2:30 p.m.  My presentation is part of the Methodology track.  I love to meet my blog readers, so attend the presentation or stop by afterwards and introduce yourself.


  1. Great stuff, Mark. Off the top of my head I can’t think of anything to add. I’m trying to improve my habits with the research logs. Love the quotes from Elizabeth Shown Mills. I can’t make it to BYU; hope you can make it to SCGS Jamboree sometime. Thank you for sharing this material.

  2. This visual representation is great, Mark. It is very clear and easy to follow. The last two Mills references on your bibliography are in a different font. You may want to be consistent. I hope to be at the BYU conference on Friday and will try to catch your presentation.
