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.

Any genealogist worth his or her own salt must have this useful reference tool. In this day and age of electronic genealogy it is growing more and more important to fully document your sources found online. They can be here today and gone tomorrow. This easy to follow guide takes the guess work out of documentation. It lays a firm foundation with its basic principles and has models for common record types such as census images, census indexes & databases, digital articles & books, historical records, land-entry records, newspaper & newspaper items, passenger lists, social security death index and vital records. It gives examples of three different entry types--source list entry, full reference note, and short reference note. It is four pages long and comes laminated for long lasting use. This is something you definitely should keep at your fingertips!

First Revised Edition with updated sample citations and style changes.

Elizabeth Mills's QuickSheet provides a template for citing historical sources on the Internet. It also lays down rules to help you judge the reliability of these sources.

Published in the form of a laminated folder, the QuickSheet contains a series of sample citations showing the correct way to identify online sources such as databases, census images, and digital books and articles.

Based on the premise that online sources are publications that have the same characteristics as printed publications, it provides rules and models for common record types such as passenger lists, vital records, and newspapers. Since a website is the online equivalent of a book, the QuickSheet shows you how to cite author/creator/owner of a website, title of the website, place (URL), date posted, and so forth.

Convenient for desktop use at home or in the library, the QuickSheet answers all those niggling questions left unanswered by the standard citation guides; it is also a perfect companion to the classic citation manual Evidence! Citation & Analysis for the Family Historian and Mills's 885-page definitive guide to the citation and analysis of historical sources, Evidence Explained: Citing History Sources from Artifacts to Cyberspace.

Elizebeth Mills is increasingly referred to as one of the main citation sources for genealogical methods and standards. While this 2 sheet laminated card does help, I wasn't thrilled when I received it.

Opening my wondeful Amazon box (with other goodies) it was "oh yeah, hmm".

The sheet is not really worth the money cause it misses some elements of citation - especially if you are international - rather than being based in the US.

But then again, for the time, effort and expense of getting your own copy laminated it might be a bad option.

Personally, I feel this double sided sheet should have been added and available for free in conjunction with her book "Evidence! Citation & Analysis for the Family Historian" ISBN-10: 0806315431

Conclusion: Have a review yourself with the "Search Inside" and see whether it suits you.

The problem with this particular QuickSheet is that it was written in 2007, before Elizabeth Mills changed her philosophy about citations for the 2nd edition of her book. She no longer recommends some of the practices that are outlined on this QuickSheet. The QuickSheet for Ancestry.com is up-to-date, as it was written in 2010.

Lots of valuable information in a concise fashion. Easily transported and readily available for review. Wonderful source citing tool. Handy to carry in a notebook or file folder when doing research for review of material accessed.

I needed an update guide of "How To" for citing online sources for my history research. It was better than I had hoped. It covered several types of sourecs material I had not considered. I believe it a good backup for larger style manuals.

This is a very helpful tool for quick reference. Using Elizabeth Miles' "Evidence Explained" system for citation of historical/genealogical research, the Quicksheet offers examples of some of the most common sources. It's particularly helpful for folks who don't write these citation notes every day -- it's easy to pick up the Quicksheet and be reminded of how to cite a particular source.
