Re: Genealogy A wonderful article: Quality Citations for Electronic Genealogy Sources, By Mark Howells http://www.oz.net/~markhow/writing/cite.htm
Re: Genealogy Genealogical Standards and Guidelines Standards For Sound Genealogical Research Recommended by the National Genealogical Society Remembering always that they are engaged in a quest for truth, family history researchers consistently- record the source for each item of information they collect. test every hypothesis or theory against credible evidence, and reject those that are not supported by the evidence. seek original records, or reproduced images of them when there is reasonable assurance they have not been altered, as the basis for their research conclusions. use compilations, communications and published works, whether paper or electronic, primarily for their value as guides to locating the original records. state something as a fact only when it is supported by convincing evidence, and identify the evidence when communicating the fact to others. limit with words like "probable" or "possible" any statement that is based on less than convincing evidence, and state the reasons for concluding that it is probable or possible. avoid misleading other researchers by either intentionally or carelessly distributing or publishing inaccurate information. state carefully and honestly the results of their own research, and acknowledge all use of other researchers' work. recognize the collegial nature of genealogical research by making their work available to others through publication, or by placing copies in appropriate libraries or repositories, and by welcoming critical comment. consider with open minds new evidence or the comments of others on their work and the conclusions they have reached. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------- ©1997 by National Genealogical Society.

Re: Genealogy Genealogical Standards and Guidelines Standards For Sharing Information With Others Recommended by the National Genealogical Society conscious of the fact that sharing information or data with others, whether through speech, documents or electronic media, is essential to family history research and that it needs continuing support and encouragement, responsible family historians consistently- respect the restrictions on sharing information that arise from the rights of another as an author, originator or compiler; as a living private person; or as a party to a mutual agreement. observe meticulously the legal rights of copyright owners, copying or distributing any part of their works only with their permission, or to the limited extent specifically allowed under the law's "fair use" exceptions. identify the sources for all ideas, information and data from others, and the form in which they were received, recognizing that the unattributed use of another's intellectual work is plagiarism. respect the authorship rights of senders of letters, electronic mail and data files, forwarding or disseminating them further only with the sender's permission. inform people who provide information about their families as to the ways it may be used, observing any conditions they impose and respecting any reservations they may express regarding the use of particular items. require some evidence of consent before assuming that living people are agreeable to further sharing of information about themselves. convey personal identifying information about living people--like age, home address, occupation or activities--only in ways that those concerned have expressly agreed to. recognize that legal rights of privacy may limit the extent to which information from publicly available sources may be further used, disseminated or published. communicate no information to others that is known to be false, or without making reasonable efforts to determine its truth, particularly information that may be derogatory. are sensitive to the hurt that revelations of criminal, immoral, bizarre or irresponsible behavior may bring to family members. -------------------------------------------------------------- ©2000 by National Genealogical Society.

Greetings Researchers, I'd like to introduce the new mailing list that has been created at RootsWeb, ETHICS-IN-GENEALOGY-L. This forum is for discussions of ethics, accuracy, integrity, and excellence in genealogical research. *As genealogists, what do we consider appropriate and inappropriate behavior? *Is there a code of ethics for family historians? *What internet genealogical sites would you rank as "excellent"? Which do you think are "inferior"? *Should we pay for genealogy? By posting our information to the net, are we "sharing", or are we just "giving away"? *Have you been "burned" by another researcher? What can and should be done? *Any comments about the big influx of inexperienced "newbie" family history seekers on the net? You must be a subscriber to post to the list. To subscribe send the word "subscribe" (without the quotes) as the only text in the body of a message to firstname.lastname@example.org (mail mode) or email@example.com (digest mode)." Laura Koehn, ListOwner firstname.lastname@example.org
Greetings once again, researchers, To view and post to the companion GenConnect boards for this mailing list and any other surname of interest, visit http://genconnect.rootsweb.com/indx/FamAssoc.html. Please let me know if I can be of assistance in using these boards. Laura, ListOwner email@example.com
Greetings Researchers, Now that the holidays are behind us, how about getting into some serious genealogical research. As Listowner, I am calling for a "Roll Call". Everyone is welcome to post the particular lines that they are working on to the list. Be sure to include all vital information with your query, such as birth, death, and marriage dates and places. Don't forget to include maiden names, if known. There are lots of new researchers this time of the year (affectionately dubbed "newbies"), so let's all be patient, understanding, and helpful. Below are some examples of some good and bad subject lines. Examples of GOOD subject lines: (Be descriptive--but short) Subject: John SMITH 1865-1734 Cleveland, OH Subject: John SMITH b.1865 OH md. DIRKS Subject: John SMITH md. 1885 OH Maggie DIRKS Examples of POOR subject lines: Subject: Looking for SMITH Subject: New subscriber post Subject: Johan SMITH Subject: Need help! Don't forget to post to the GenConnect boards for this surname as well. If anyone needs help with this mailing list or the GenConnect boards, please contact me. Good luck with your searching! Laura, Listowner firstname.lastname@example.org
