ARCHIVED: GPS Study Group - Chapter 3


DearREADERS,
Gosh! Thanks to our panelists, we successfully navigated through Christine Rose's Chapter 3 of the Genealogical Proof Standard: Building a Solid Case 4th Revised Edition. We chose to discuss Cousin Russ Worthington's homework as he points out alternate sources over at Ancestry are forms of conflicting evidence that need to be resolved. Here's the link to his homework:

Introduction
I.                 Research Question
II.             What do we know?
III.         What documents are found?
IV.         Analysis, Correlation, Resolving conflicting info
V.            Conclusion
Endnotes – footnotes (citations)
Images (inline vs appendices)


Next week, our panel participants have agreed to read chapter 4, then take one of their previously submitted homework assignments and create a brief write-up using the outline above.
