When I see the phrase: " …is very, very commonly ignored especially by novices, but often by experienced researchers…" it catches my attention.
James Tanner writing at Genealogy's Star includes this phase in his excellent discussion of The Research Process Steps in "Skipping the evaluation of records."
I believe we can each benefit form this updated presentation making use of the new information at the FamilySearch Research Wiki. Check it out, both the blog post by James and the Wiki references. … whether you are a novice or and experiences researcher… ;-)
What do you think? Will you use this reminder it? Comments welcomed.
Families are Forever! ;-)
