Occasionally, I run into a really tough question during my research. I have always known that I should document my research and also document my thought processes and conclusions. The Genealogical Proof Standard (GPS) seemed great, but it seemed a bit heavy and pedantic. Then I found podcasts by Lisa Louise Cooke in her Genealogy Gems series. (In case you haven't subscribed to her podcast, they are a great learning tool.) The first podcast about the GPS (Episode 20) is available HERE.
The best part is Family History Episode 23 – Using the Genealogical Proof Standard, which is available again HERE. In this podcast she gives a very concrete example of the GPS in use. She has a great Research Worksheet for documenting research using the GPS. She shows both an example of the Worksheet in use in her research and also provides a blank form to download. You can find the links to the forms as the bottom of the podcast page.
