GeneJ: Activity on the wiki has progressed. Focus:
- Resolve conflicts in how E & C is designed for BetterGEDCOM.
- Renewed discussion bow E & C relate to algorithms and auto-merge.
- Gier’s “multi-tiered” approach to incorporate source materials AND logic.
The logic that will be recorded will never get you to “the best evidence” – into one person. There is a gap between where the information is, and where current software. Evidence, conclusion and biography person – 3 styles.
Today’s software permits recording of conclusions and publish biographies.
Make standards for what current genealogy programs do, but do differently. Then set standards for how to do it – all can comply.
Do we want a better format – or do we want better research methods? Stick with better format.

If we don’t have standards, we won’t have online citations.
