Digging in! 

On Wednesday afternoon after a long day at work, I rushed home to check the mail for my package that contained this!

Unfortunately, when I received it, it was very damaged with the front and back cover almost completely off the book 😦 I contacted Amazon and they sent me a new copy out the very next day. I received my new copy on Friday and had plans to dig into it this weekend!
I was not able to get to it until this evening as my sisters’ turned 16 yesterday and we spent the day celebrating!

I went through this book with post-its to mark the citations that will help with Canadian records (as that is where I primarily research).

This book is huge and it is a gold mine of information! Even if you do not aspire to be a professional genealogist this book will still serve you well for your personal genealogy as well!

I will be watching DearMyrtle’s study group on Youtube based on the first two chapters of Elizabeth Shown Mills’ Evidence Explained.

I am very excited to delve deeper into this book and start keeping proper source citations for all the records and information I find and have found in the past. My tree is a mess and I am putting everything aside and “starting over”.

I just received this book, but from what I have read of it so far and from the reviews of others, I highly recommend you pick up a copy of this book to add to your genealogy resources!

Have a Great Day!
