Re: Genealogical Proof Standard

@Mike. Are there any clear descriptions as to what will be in FH7? I too am tidying and checking things in my research. Good fun but quite labour intensive. If there are tools that would make certain things easier I could hold off certain Clean/Check tasks until FH7 is released.

Hi Terry,

To avoid any misunderstanding, presumably GPS does not mean Global Positioning System but Genealogical Proof Standard.



Not only does FH V7 have word-processing but also Source Citation Templates that may help with your GPS.

Subject: [family-historian] Genealogical Proof Standard


I have used the current situation to take a 6 week online family history course (free at this time) with the University of Strathclyde. As part of that, I have been introduced to GPS. My reaction is that I have largely followed the spirit of the Proof Standard, but then again, I will formerly carry this out for direct ancestors.
I think I will have to construct a blank form, to ease the formal procedure, to use for each genealogical question being answered [the simplest examples  being 'who are the parents?' and 'who is the spouse?'].
I have 2 questions: (1) Has anyone else gone through this process formally and embedded the statements/reports in FH6? (2) Will the word processing facilities in the fabled FH7 help to embed such proof statements/reports?  
Context: I have nearly 6k people on my tree and have been building it for about 12 years. I started with Legacy software then FTM but moved to FH6 3 years ago - what a wonderful piece of software. Custom queries are helping me to tidy up the information well.
regards Terry
