Best Practices

Citations - Genealogical citations represent the record of Evidence that supports Conclusions. Applications design source and citations systems to support their users' practices, often incorporating an interpretation of one citation style or another. BetterGEDCOM is working to develop
(1) an awareness about citation styles [see Modern style guides], and
(2) particular awareness about the genealogical citation style aspects of Elizabeth Shown Mills' //Evidence!// series as a growing number of Applications this style.
(3) how these guidelines influence user and Application practices.
(4) International application of citation principles
