Over the course of the last few Introduction to One-Name Studies courses I have been asked a number of questions and thought that it was worth sharing them here. Over the course of the next few weeks I will share the questions and subsequent discussion. I hope you find it interesting.
Having just completed my recent series – Strategy for a Genealogical Project we are now going to move along to a series about Sources and Citations. This series will be of use and interest to genealogists and those undertaking specific projects, such as One-Name Studies, One-Place Studies, researching buildings etc. I shall also mention about collating a repositories list, although I may well come back to that later in the year, as a regular feature, so stay tuned for that.
Here is the series line up:
- Differences between sources and citations
- What is a source?
- primary sources
- secondary sources
- what is NOT a source
- What is a citation?
- What is the point of recording citations?
- References & Guidance for Citations
- Are sources ever wrong?
- Repository lists
- Genealogical Proof Standard
- Approaches to writing Citations
- Creating your own citations and guidance for others.
Some of this is covered in the Introduction to One-Name Studies course, and some of this discussion, assumes that researchers understand the differences & appreciates the value of sources, citations and creating a Repository list.
