Genealogists use original documents and records throughout their research. It is important that every bit of information contained within a document is extracted, analysed for clues and hints for further research and a summary of your findings/analysis and conclusion is written.
Document or record analysis involved not just the contents of the document or record, but the physical appearance and properties of the document as well.
This Handy Guide gives you an easy to follow run down on 'how' to analyse a record or document. Obviously it starts with undertaking a general analysis of the record, then goes on to roadmapping the record, followed by asking which calendar was in use at that period.
You'll also get tips on how to transcribe the record, create an abstract of the genealogical details from it, and write up a report of that records.
Analysing every document is something we NEED to do - as researchers we need to question everything.
