Today’s episode of Research Like a Pro is about the FamilySearch Family Tree and how to add your conclusions in a way that meets the Genealogical Proof Standard (GPS). We go through each of the 5 elements of the GPS and discuss the opportunities in the tree to provide source citations, reason statements, and written conclusions.
