  1. Debbie Hilliard

    I have been frustrated with these two terms for all of my 25 years of research. I highly recommend this book to simplify and de-mystify sources and citations. I no longer procrastinate this part of my research. Sassy Jane’s eBook Organizing Genealogical Research Using Archival Principles is also very beneficial in all areas of organizing your research and digital files. These two books work well together in getting your research and digital files in good order.
