In anticipation of the soon to be released book on the Genealogical Proof Standard (GPS) by Tom Jones, I decided to take a look at this work by Christine Rose. It's a quick read which summarizes the basics of the GPS and provides a few examples of putting the process to work. Thankfully, I've been following the GPS appropriately in my own work although I have to admit that I'm a bit more hesitant in drawing conclusions in order to connect family members when there is absolutely no direct evidence. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is doing genealogical research, regardless of their level. I wish I'd had this book available when I first began to research my own family - it surely would have impressed on me the need to document my findings in a much better manner than I did during those early years.

Genealogical Proof Standard is the very first book I found that explains the key concepts of the Genealogical Proof Standard in ordinary, clear to understand language. Christine Rose has managed to take a difficult and often debated concept and boil it down to its essentials. She also includes explanations for the key concepts behind the Proof Standard – which I find lacking in many writings dealing with this. It’s nice to explain why we need to do “a reasonably exhaustive search” but almost nowhere is it explained what is meant by “reasonably exhaustive” – but this little book does! I do wish the author had expanded it a bit more, but it’s still the best book on the subject I’ve read so far. ( )

The Genealogical Proof Standard is the standard set by the genealogical field to build a solid case, especially when there is no direct evidence providing an snswer, or when there are conflicts in the evidence. This easy-to-read guide clearly sets forth the elements of this standard, and how to apply it to resolve genealogical problems.
