This excellent book from the BCG distills these standards into clear statements regarding:
Genealogical Research - genealogical proof, data collection, evidence evaluation, & compilations. (If any of these terms are unfamiliar to you, this book might be a real eye-opener.)
Genealogical Teaching - for lecturers, instructors & educational writers.
Continuing Education in Genealogy.
The bulk of the book is in its excellent appendices where examples of genealogical reports, proof summaries, compiled lineages, pedigrees, and genealogies are given to clearly illustrate what good genealogy looks like.
This book is great for measuring yourself against how the very best genealogists conduct and report their research. Seeing how proper genealogy should be done makes us all better genealogists.
I have doing genealogical research for the past 64 years. I have found that most so called genealogists are simply collectors of other peoples work and that most of them do not even describe the source of their collections. Early in my research I decided that unless the source is given for most facts, the work is nothing more than gossip; not malicious, but merely hearsay.
I recommend this book to all genealogists and beg them to follow its standards.
