    Evidence!
    Citation & Analysis for the Family Historian
    By Elizabeth Shown Mills

    Elizabeth Shown Mills' stunning book, Evidence!, provides the family history researcher with a reliable standard for both the correct form of source citation and the sound analysis of evidence. In successful genealogical research, these two practices are inseparable, and the author's treatment of this little-understood concept is nothing short of brilliant.

    This dual-track theme is introduced early on, and is best summed up in a few choice paragraphs from the introduction: "Successful research—research that yields correct information with a minimum of wasted time and funds—depends upon a sound analysis of evidence. Source citation is fundamental, but it is not enough. The validity of any piece of evidence cannot be analyzed if its source is unknown. Citing a worthless source is an effort that produces worthless results.

    The Great War: A Guide to the Service Records of All the World's Fighting Men and Volunteers

    Regular Price: $22.50

    Special Price: $19.13

    World War I has passed from living memory into the history books, receding far enough into the distance to provide a genealogical challenge. In order to reconstruct the lives and locate the records of those who served, fought, volunteered, or were conscripted, we must rely on a vast but relatively unknown body of resources. Counting all combatants, the number of men who served in the Great War runs into the millions; needless to say, finding records on them in the two dozen countries that participated in the war is a daunting and laborious task--now made infinitely simpler with the publication of this magnificent guide to WWI service records.

  10. The Beginner's Guide to Using Tax Lists

    The Beginner's Guide to Using Tax Lists

    Regular Price: $20.50

    Special Price: $17.43

    Tax lists are one of our most valuable, if often neglected, sources of genealogical information. Tax lists can refer to personal property tax lists, tithables, poll lists, land tax lists, and rent rolls. They usually divulge the names of heads of households and other males aged 16 or over, as well as valuations of slaves, cattle, horses, other types of personal property, land taxes, and notes of interest. They can be used not only to trace a family's migration and its taxable property, but also to prove parentage when no other records are available. Tax lists place individuals in a particular place at a particular time and indicate the amount and type of property owned. They may also indicate the relationship of individuals in a household and their approximate ages.
