More About the Author

Elizabeth Shown Mills is an internationally acclaimed historical researcher and writer who has spent her life studying American culture and the relationships between people--emotional as well as genetic. Featured on BBC, CNN, PBS, and other networks in the U.S., U.K., and Australia, she has guest-blogged for the NEW YORK TIMES and has been widely cited as "the genealogist who has had the most influence in the post-Roots era."

Her 13 prize-winning books range from reference works such as "Evidence Explained: Citing History Sources from Artifacts to Cyberspace" (Library Journal 2007 Best Reference) to the historical novel, "Isle of Canes," which chronicles a family of freed slaves across four generations, and is drawn from Mills's own research in the archives of six nations.

Her latest work is the greatly enlarged, revised edition of the Louisiana State University Press classic, THE FORGOTTEN PEOPLE: CANE RIVER'S CREOLES OF COLOR.

I find these Quicksheets very handy, portable and sturdy enough to travel with. Anything by Ms. Shown Mills is first rate and sure to help newbies me to the advanced family history keepers. In the case of her Quicksheets, most are tremendously useful in easily writing good source citations for all the different types of photos,facts, events, items and trivia found during genealogical prowls online and in-person.

One of the Quicksheets just purchased is specific to Ancestry.com. Laminated on four pages, it provides templates and examples for writing Source List Entries, full Reference Notes as well as the subsequent reference notes if any to Ancestry Databases, Record types, and Images. Figuring out how to 'source' items and events I find on Ancestry.com will no longer 'throw' me! From census images, military records, newspapers to maps and wills, Elizabeth Shown Mills has my back. Hooray!

The other Quicksheet purchased is a double sided laminated research guide. It is brilliant in its succinctness! It is titled, "Genealogical Problem Analysis: A Strategic Plan." It contains a Life Stage Worksheet template on one side to remind me of all the different life events that my subject person may have experienced and for which written traces my still exist. On the other side is a well written, "10 Steps to a Solution" guide which begins with "1) Focus on understanding, not upon finding names. 2) Organize, chronologically, known 'facts' about the problem person. 3) Separate documented ... from undocumented 'facts'" Each step is so logical and linearly cohesive. To the degree that I follow her guidance, Ms. Shown Mills guide should help me be more focused as well as more accurate. This Quicksheet also provides a great reminder that their are great differences between Original vs Derivative Sources, Primary vs Secondary Information and Direct vs Indirect Evidence.

I use this sheet all the time. It stays by my chair while I'm online. The sheet is written by ESM who literally wrote the book on footnoting in genealogy. Having the heavy duty cheat sheets was an excellent idea.

This quicksheet is a wonderful resource. Instead of searching through ESM's "Evidence Explained", I just pick up the sheet and, for any ancestry database, I can find the correct way to cite the source in seconds. Great timesaver.

Poorly laminated. Laminated edges are not sealed, making the laminating pretty much worthless. Plus, they added a product sticker with adhesive that is very difficult to remove. Ordinarily, that's not a problem, but because of the poor lamination, I have to be careful about getting the inside paper wet/oily. For the price, the laminating should have been a better quality and how about using stickers that can be peeled off!!! Would not buy again.

It is a quick way to remember places and a concise list to help with genie searches. Glad it was laminated!

This is a handy sized guide to writing mineralogy references when you use Ancestry as your source. The citations themselves are surprisingly lengthy. I plan to check other guides before I decide if I want to use this method.
