Sources & Citations Series – References & Guidance for Citations

Sources & Citations SeriesThe first book I wholeheartedly recommend is Evidence Explained by Elizabeth Shown Mills.Evidence Explained

The author has created a comprehensive website which offers many examples and explanations for citations for a variety of source material.

Sources & Citations BookThe second book that I recommend is by a fellow Guild of One-Name Studies member, Dr Ian G. Macdonald. This book almost passed me by, but when I saw it was scheduled for publication in May 2018 I advanced ordered it. It is written from a UK perspective, in contrast to Evidence Explained, and I consider it is a worthy book for any genealogists to have in their reference library, along side, Evidence Explained.

Other recommendations:

Disclaimer – I have not financially benefited from naming nor recommending these books. I purchased the books myself and all comments and opinions are my own.

    I wondered whether Evidence Explained was very US focused so now you’ve answered that point. Will make a note to get Ian’s book….
