Jones, 2017 (Arlington, VA: National Genealogical Society). [Available from the publisher at www.ngsgenealogy.org and in Amazon’s Kindle bookstore.]

It is particularly important when discussing documentation guidelines that we observe copyright. You will note our panelists typically compare and contrast the author’s idea with those of Elizabeth Shown Mills. We realize both authors provide guidelines, but it is up to individual researchers to adequately describe the type of record or artifact they are viewing and it’s context historically.
