Methodology Tuesday Reading for October

Methodology Tuesday

I somehow managed to volunteer myself to moderate the October “Methodology Tuesday” discussion! So for this month, I have selected a reading by Thomas W. Jones, Ph.D., CG, CGL, titled, “The Genealogical Proof Standard: How Simple Can It Be?” (OnBoard 16, September 2010).

This is a short, fun, easy, read, which discusses how some genealogists believe that “applying the GPS requires gargantuan investments in research, reasoning, and writing,” or that it only applies to problems with no obvious solution. Not so, according to Mr. Jones: the GPS applies to ANY genealogical problem, large or small! 😀

Be sure to join us at the Just Genealogy Fire Pit on Tuesday, October 20th, at 6:00 p.m. SLT, to share your thoughts on this article. Genealogists of all levels are welcome. Contact Ellington Sweeney, by email or in-world, if you have questions.
