||This is one of a series of articles on Genealogical Methods, prepared in association with The Tapestry. See Index for a list of related articles.|
The following aren't exactly methods, but they are useful things for a genealogist to keep in mind
- You don't know what you know, unless you know how you know it.
- Absence of proof is not proof of absence
- Finding a name you seek, is not the same thing as finding the person you seek
- Belief is not the same thing as fact
