Lindon, Utah – August 15, 2007 –Today, Footnote.com announced a partnership with Elizabeth Shown Mills to distribute her new book, Evidence Explained. This definitive guide to citation and analysis of historical resources features over 1,000 citation models and is now available in digital format on Footnote.com.
“The world of research is changing in exciting new ways” says Roger Bell, President of Footnote.com, “Evidence Explained is a great tool to help academics, students and genealogists use these new resources.”
Mills was the long-term editor of the National Genealogical Society Quarterly and has delivered over 500 lectures globally, appeared on radio and TV talk shows on three continents, and was featured on the BBC’s (British Broadcasting Corporation) 20th anniversary special on the novel Roots and the PBS-KBYU series Ancestors: Second Season. A recipient of the NGS President's Citation and the APG Graham T. Smallwood Jr. Award, Mills has been cited by her peers as "the genealogist who has had the greatest impact on American genealogy in the post-Roots era."
Historical and genealogical research has come a long way since the days of using encyclopedias and card catalogs. The digital age has added valuable resources including websites like Footnote.com, digital books, podcasts and more. Genealogical research can be challenging and Evidence Explained will help provide a better understanding of how to properly use these new resources.
