WDSS Study Group: Homework Guidelines


Friday we will host the first session of the What does SHE Say? Study Group. Submitting homework prior to each session provides a positive paradigm shift as  previous panelists affirm. (Great alliteration, don't you think?) Ol' Myrt here will post Chapter 1 homework questions shortly.


  1. Study Group participants will follow copyright guidelines expressed in this short-subject video conversation with a “genealogist with a law degree” The Legal Genealogist Judy G. Russell, JD, CGSM , CGLSM . Though the focus was another course manual, the concepts apply across the board.

  2. Homework and chapter review will be done prior to each study group session.
  3. Homework heading will include the following elements:
    1. Participant’s name
    2. Evidence Explained citation
  4. Post a link to homework published in blog or Google doc format as a comment to the next study group session hangout post at

Elizabeth Shown Mills, Evidence Explained: Citing History Sources from Artifacts to Cyberspace, 3rd edition (Baltimore, Maryland: Genealogical Publishing Company, 2015). [Book available from the publisher at and in digital format from the author's website]
