Genealogy needs to be shared. It serves no point otherwise.

For those who want to use your work, you offer a huge benefit if you can give some assurance that it is of sound quality. The facts you include need to be seen as coming from reliable sources that can be checked. So assurance depends on you stating where your facts have come from and providing a reference to where you found them.

In this one-hour talk Ian Waller explains:

- How to do it effectively and straightforwardly;

- How to ensure that others can follow in your footsteps and come to the same conclusions as you.

Proper assessment of sources is also essential, so that you and others are drawing the right conclusions. You need to know how to do this and how to make judgements on what you find is important. Ian looks at:

-Approaches to take;

- How to treat the outcomes in your work so that others can follow your thinking and follow the evidence trail.
