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.
