Ask the Expert

Expert Question: I want to learn about evidence and analysis of genealogical information.  What do you suggest I read?

Expert Answer: There are all kinds of genealogical books in print, but few cover in detail the application and analysis of genealogy as does Applied Genealogy by Eugene Aubrey Stratton.  Stratton has as well established background in American research and has held many positions in organizations associated with genealogy including historian general of the General Society of Mayflower Descendants as well as the approving genealogist for other hereditary societies.  In this book, he shows the importance of documenting where information is uncovered such as a vital records or family bible as a means of proving the validity of genealogical information.  He explains the difference between direct and indirect evidence and analyzes how to use different pieces of evidence.  Although this book does not gives sources of research as may genealogical books do, this book is required reading by serious genealogists to avoid making assumptions and mistakes in analyzing information.  This book was published by Ancestry Incorporated in 1988.
