I've found this book extremely helpful in doing my genealogical research, and I would recommend it to others who wish to look up their families.

This book was very helpful in providing ideas on how to prove a lineage when primary sources have not yet been located.

While short, Genealogical Proof Standard covers a lot of ground and gives the reader a good foundation in applying the genealogical proof standard (GPS) to their research. Readers learn what the GPS is, why it exists and exactly how to apply it to their work. There are a couple case studies in the book as well so the reader can follow along with the author.

The book also includes a brief list of sources for further reading. If you're interested in learning more about the GPS in depth, I highly suggest you look at those as well.

The only reason I rated it a 4 rather than a 5 is that there are other books that explore this is more depth. However, if you're looking for an introduction to the GPS, this is a good book to start with before moving on to the others.

This book is great for explaining what the proof standard is, how to build a solid case with primary and secondary information from the different records you are able to locate. It also explains how to pull all your data together to write up your proof argument.

This book presented a good general out line but lacked details in how to execute them. It could be improved by including a systematic list of questions that allow the reader to better refine his search. Additionally, more examples of how to write a proof and address conflicting data should be included.

Excellant and easy read. Helps improve genealogy sourcing. It forced me to re-look at other records and to review previous files. Thanks.

This is a must read for anyone who wants to research their ancestors. This is a quick read, and a great resource to keep handy. If you're going to research your ancestors, you may as well do it right then write it so others in your family tree won't have to start from the beginning.
