    1. In anticipation of the soon to be released book on the Genealogical Proof Standard (GPS) by Tom Jones, I decided to take a look at this work by Christine Rose. It's a quick read which summarizes the basics of the GPS and provides a few examples of putting the process to work. Thankfully, I've been following the GPS appropriately in my own work although I have to admit that I'm a bit more hesitant in drawing conclusions in order to connect family members when there is absolutely no direct evidenc [...]

    2. This slim book describes the "Genealoical Proof System", essentially the methods that one uses to judge when sources don't agree and direct, primary evidence doesn't exist. It's pretty straightforward stuff and nothing was really surprising so I was surprised to see the book so highly rated on amazon. While useful, it wasn't saying anything that any person who can apply simple logic would choose. Then again, perhaps that group of people is smaller than I think. :)

    3. The documentation is the least fun part of genealogy and is actually the most important part. Sometimes we get too far into it before we realize the importance. This is a little textbook that should be read by everyone when they start their genealogical journey. It is possible to build a solid case without a magic document. This book outlines the steps.

    4. This book provides for genealogical researchers by giving guidelines on how to prove your ancestral claims through documented evidence. Christine Rose goes over the basics of family history research by defining primary and secondary resources, as well as direct, indirect, and negative evidences.

    5. Loved this little book on the Genealogical Proof Standard. Great examples! I particularly enjoyed the discussion of evaluating source credibility as a separate analysis after determining whether the source was primary/secondary and the information original/derivative.

    6. A must read for every genealogist. Solid foundation principles of methodology presented in a clear manner. And it's a quick read too!

    7. Not that helpful in the fact this information is just talking in circles and is in every other book. Only redeeming aspect is that it was short!

    8. A short but solid introduction to the Genealogical Proof Standard, explaining the concepts and working through a few examples.

    9. Overall, it touches on each point of the GPS and puts it in simple terms. However, I felt that the narrative jumped around in a non-linear manner.

    10. Good clear examination of the genealogical proof standard. Nothing very new, but easy to read and provides a nice summary of how we need to approach genealogical evidence.
