Research is about the conclusions you draw with the evidence you have found and documenting how you came up with those conclusions so that the Genealogist-In-The-Future-Who-Is-Better-Than-You-Or-Who-Has-Access-To-More-Records can know the whats, wheres, and whys of your work.
The Future could be this afternoon or ten, fifty, or 250 years from now.
This way, that Genealogist-In-The-Future… will also be able to tell what you missed and can avoid banging his or her head against the wall.
The Genealogists’ Oath should begin with First, do nothing that could cause future genealogists to bang their heads against the wall.
(Apologies to the Hippocratic Oath.)
