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.

This quickseet goes over the how-to of solving a genealogical problem. Being that it's from Elizabeth Shown Mills, it's fantastic, easy to follow, and still brief enough to store anywhere on your desk.

This is very helpful and is in a format that can be taken with you on a research trip. Often when you have researched one thing for a long time it helps to step back and see what steps you might have skipped. This helps you have that detailed research plan.

Excellent tool for anyone in genealogy to use. It is especially useful for beginners to know how to plan and which direction to go.

All of the works by Elizabeth Shown Mills are absolutely indispensable. The quicksheets provide a thorough and understandable path through the unknown issues of correctly citing sourses. Without her work it would be very difficult to have consistant sourse information.

A plastic sheet to be used to trace a format for accumulated data as one searches for genealogy materiel's. I suppose it could be scanned into the computer so that one could run off sheets to use-----except all the blanks are filled with examples of what the author has used to explain how the sheet is to be used>
