For instance, the FREE Research Guides web page:

The newest article, 5 Steps to a Healthy Family Tree was written by Amy Johnson Crow, Anne Gillespie Mitchell, and Juliana Smith:

This article introduces the five major tenets of the Genealogical Proof Standard, and how to use the proof standard to do excellent research.

You can download all of these articles to your computer as PDF files and read them at your leisure, or print them out for future reference or sharing.

*  Alaska (02 January 2014)
*  California (08 January 2014)
*  Connecticut (1 March 2014)
*  Georgia (25 November 2013)
