Tim Birkowski's "I found my biological Grandfather - the smoking gun" on the Sherlock's Genealogical Adventures blog.

Jason Crew's series of comments in the DearMYRTLE Genealogy Forum on G+ that began with: "Am I missing something, or would listing a marriage as an assertion from an 1850 census record be incorrect?  I was doing it  out of habit based on the other census, but when I looked closely I noticed that it doesn't actually state the relationship other than they live in the same household.  
My other thought would be to include the assertion, but consider it indirect, because of the positioning, age relative to others on the census, gender, etc."

Is there a FORUM to archive new genealogy citation formats a la Elizabeth Shown Mills? Yes. Check them out at

Happy family tree climbing!
