Producing a high-quality, reliable genealogy for your family requires thoughtfulness and thoroughness during the research process.

Testing your work against recognized standards helps achieve your goals. This introduction to the Genealogical Proof Standard looks at the development of modern standards, their importance for all genealogists, and how anyone, at any level of experience, can effectively apply these common-sense standards and techniques to their family project.
