In this post you can read more about the Genealogy Standards, a book that every family genealogist/historian and professional genealogists should buy, read, and follow.
The Genealogy Standards Second Edition Revised is a book published by the Board for Certification of Genealogists. It is for both for the hobbyist and professional researcher. It contains the following standards.
- The Genealogical Proof Standard
- Standards for Documenting
- Standards for Researching
- Standards for Writing
- Standards for Genealogical Educators
- Standards for Continuing Education
Why am I sharing this with you? Because I want you to take your genealogy research to the next level.
I also want for you to adopt these standards so that we all, the Mexican Genealogy Community, can become better at proving, writing, researching, and documenting our genealogy.
With this book you can also learn how to evaluate other researchers work.
Here is the cover of the book with a link to buy it on Amazon. I bought this book years ago and believe me it was worth every single dollar I spent on it.
Book Description by Amazon
"How do family historians know they are producing or receiving trustworthy results? This official manual from the Board of Certification for Genealogists, essentially a users' guide for family historians, provides standards for genealogical researchers to assess their own and others' work. The revised second edition increases the clarity of DNA and privacy standards. Those standards are especially useful in the twenty-first century, when many genealogists use a complex new tool―DNA testing―and trace living people more often than they did in the past."
