Recently, Thomas MacEntee of Geneabloggers, posted a review of the new Quicksheet by Elizabeth Shown Mills, Genealogical Problem Analysis. His review caught my eye and I ordered a Quicksheet for myself.
This Quicksheet is absolutely essential to any genealogist’s library. Mills outlines a ten step process to help find a solution to genealogical problems. She discusses elements to appraise when looking for proof and includes a Life Stages Worksheet on the flip side of the GPA sheet.
The main reason I see this as essential to all libraries is for each of the ten steps to a solution, Mills suggests you create a worksheet to record the information and sources you have discovered. These worksheets help you evaluate your information, show where your gaps are, and help you identify other sources to search.
Take a look at Thomas MacEntee’s in-depth review and then order a Quicksheet for yourself. You will be amazed at how helpful it will be in your research.
